One man was killed and two other persons injured following a motor vehicle crash along the Mandela Highway yesterday morning.

The person killed has since been identified as 39-year-old Winston McDonald, otherwise called Aldene Gooden, of Homestead and Waterford addresses in St Catherine.

Reports from the Hunts Bay Police are that, about 5:45 a.m., McDonald was driving his Toyota Corolla motor car along the roadway when, on reaching the vicinity of the Duhaney River, he reportedly lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a utility pole and a road barrier.

He was flung from the vehicle and was found several feet away. He died on the spot.

The two passengers have been admitted in hospital in serious condition.

The Hunts Bay Police are investigating.
