Commish vows to honour memory of traffic cop who died in Trelawny

Police Commissioner, Owen Ellington, has vowed to honour the memory of the traffic cop who died yesterday after being involved in a motor vehicle accident in Falmouth, Trelawny.



Constable Omar Elliott, was pursuing a motorist on Duke Street in the parish when the accident took place at the intersection of Peel Street.



In a statement this morning, Ellington said the members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force mourn the loss of Elliot, whose life has been cut short.



The Constable, who was driving a service motorcycle, was thrown from the vehicle when the driver of a Toyota Harrier motor car crashed into him.



The police say initial investigations suggest that the driver of the Harrier was negotiating a right turn at the intersection corner without due care.
