The Government yesterday said it was saddened by the death of Jason Alliman, a 26-year-old prosecutor who lost his battle for life yesterday three weeks after being involved in a car crash.

Justice Minister Senator Mark Golding said Alliman was a "promising" and loved attorney in the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.

In a brief statement last night, Director of Public Prosecutions Paula Llewellyn told The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre that her employees had been left devastated by the news.

 

HEAD INJURIES

 

There has been an outpouring of grief on social media for Alliman, who succumbed to injuries he received from the December 7 crash. He had been admitted to the Cornwall Regional Hospital in St James.

The 26-year-old suffered serious head injuries and had to undergo brain surgery following the crash.

The police said Alliman was driving on a wet section of the Orange Bay main road in Hanover when his car skidded and collided with a vehicle travelling in the opposite direction.

His family had launched an appeal online on the crowd funding site GoFundme in order to raise funds to assist with financing his medical bills.
