Two senior citizens died in motor vehicle crashes in different parishes yesterday (April 5) – one in Portland and the other in St James.

In relation to the St James incident, the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) said the deceased is 61-year-old Clinton Stephenson from Bogue Hill in the parish. He was injured in a motor vehicle collision on the Fairfield main road.

The JCF said: “Reports from the Montego Bay Police are that, about 5:30AM, Stephenson was driving his motorcycle when he collided with a Toyota Corolla motor car. The police were summoned and he was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.”

In the meantime, 66-year-old labourer Vanroy Dunbar from Orange Way, Portland, died after a motor vehicle hit him from his bicycle along the Spring Gardens main road in the parish.

The JCF said: “Reports from the Buff Bay Police are that, about 9:25PM, Dunbar was riding his bicycle along the roadway when the driver of a Nissan Ad Wagon collided with him.

“He fell from the bicycle into a trench and sustained several injuries. The driver of the motor car summoned the police, and Dunbar was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead. The driver of the motor car was warned for prosecution,” the JCF added.
