The mangled remains of a Toyota Yaris motorcar that met in an accident along the Braco main road in Trelawny this morning.

The police say the four men who were killed in an early morning crash along the Braco main road in Trelawny were from the Dominican Republic and Spain.

However, their names are yet to be released. It is understood that the men were all employed to the Bahia Principe Hotel in Pear Tree Bottom, St Ann.

The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre understands that one of the men was a manager at the hotel and the other three electrical engineers.

Investigators are still at the scene piecing together clues to identify the cause of this morning's crash, which happened at about 4:30.

The Toyota Yaris motor car, in which the men were travelling, crashed into a tractor trailer.

The men were, reportedly, heading easterly towards St Ann. The bodies of the men had to be cut from the wreckage. The trailer driver, however, is in stable condition in hospital. It is also not clear if there was anyone else in the trailer.

The crash resulted in a traffic snarl along the roadway as the police and medical personnel responded to victims and took control of the scene.

The Braco main road, which forms part of the North Coast Highway, is a well-known crash hot spot which the police frequently issue warnings for motorists to drive with care along the busy thoroughfare.
