Another traffic fatality on a sister island

Another traffic fatality has been recorded in the British Virgin Islands for 2018.

A man was killed in a traffic accident on the island Jost Van Dyke on Wednesday afternoon, February 7.

Police said the unidentified crash victim was involved in a single-vehicle collision.

“The collision took place on the road that leads to the island’s dumpsite,” the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force said.

Police are still investigating the cause of the accident.

The man’s death is at least the second traffic fatality on a sister island since the start of the year.

A man died in a motor scooter accident on the island of Anegada nearly two weeks ago.
