MiyVue understands that on Tuesday, 9th November 2010, Kenrick Daniel alias ‘Winky’ of Hamilton Estate, Nevis but who resided at Stapleton Village, departed this life.
The 31-year-old was involved in a four-vehicle collision which occurred on 6th October, 2010 at about 4:00 on that afternoon.
MiyVue understands that the vehicle which Daniel was driving, HA198, was travelling eastward, along the FT Williams Highway, while the other three vehicles involved in the collision, were travelling in the opposite direction. It is understood that the bus initially collided with a car then went on to collide with another vehicle before striking a motor pick-up and coming to a halt.
This media house understands that during the incident, Daniel was thrown from the vehicle. He, along with other occupants of the vehicles, was taken to the Joseph N. France General Hospital where they received treatment for their injuries.
Information reaching MiyVue suggests that Daniel, who was paralyzed as a result of the crash, remained at the hospital and succumbed to his injuries there on Tuesday.
Sergeant Calvin Amory of the Traffic Department confirmed that the status of the accident has now been revised, and he took the opportunity to issue words of caution to all motorists. He recalled that on the day of the incident, the Federation was experiencing inclement weather and advised motorists to make a habit of paying attention to weather conditions when driving.
“The Traffic Department continues to appeal to motorists to adhere to the speed limit when they are driving on the roads. There are 40 miles per hour signs in the non-build-up areas and there are 20-miles-per-hour signs in the built up areas.
“We are also appealing to motorists to pay particular attention to the road conditions especially when it is raining. When rain falls the breaking is more difficult because the friction between the road and the tires is reduced, due to layers of water covering the road. So please pay attention to your breaking distance as well. So, we are reminding all motorists to exercise caution at all times”, said Amory.
