A motor vehicle crash in Trelawny early this morning has claimed the life of Oliver Forde, a 35-year-old handyman of Duncans in the parish and 59-year-old Phoebe Williamson-Daley of Albion Heights Crescent in Montego Bay, St James.

The police say Forde, driving a station wagon heading east at around 12:05 a.m, overtook a line of traffic in the Bogue Gate area of the North Coast Highway and crashed head-on with the car Williams-Daley was driving.

The two were pronounced dead at hospital.

Six people have now been killed in car crashes in Trelawny in just over a week.

On Monday, 23-year-old Lamar Duckie of Aires Avenue, Smokeyvale in St Andrew was killed on the infamous Braco main road when he lost control of his car and collided into a tree.

On April 6, Dwight Sutto, Janice Brown and Keino Edwards were killed at the intersection of the North Coast Highway and the Rock main road.
