A taxi operator was killed when his vehicle overturned and crashed into a ditch along the Chudleigh main road in Manchester before dawn this morning.

He is 32-year-old, Adrian Bennett. His two female passengers were also seriously injured and are in hospital in stable condition.

The police say about 4:00 this morning, Bennett was driving a Grey Honda Civic with the two female passengers aboard. He was heading in the direction of Walderston towards Christiana.

Cops say he was speeding when he hit an embankment, which caused him to lose control of the car. The car overturned and crashed in a ditch.
Bennett and his two female passengers were rushed to the Percy Junor Hospital, where Bennett was pronounced dead.

Meanwhile, media worker Barrington Campbell was laid to rest following a funeral today at the Chapel on the Mona Campus of The University of the West Indies.

Campbell, an employee of NewsTalk 93 FM located on the university campus, was killed in a car crash on March 7 in Clarendon.

Jennifer Cheeseman, the outgoing general manager of NewsTalk, hailed the 35-year-old for his "creative solutions".

She said he could fix anything in studio and had a strong sense of duty.
It is reported that Campbell died after his car crash in Clarendon when he fell asleep.

At least 100 people have been killed on the nation's roads since the start of the year.
