The law enforcers said no one was at the scene when they arrived. There were also no indication of wha caused the accident.

“Investigators are aware that Young was accompanied by a number of scooter riders, possibly friends, as he headed toward Lee Road and were likely present when the collision took place around 1:34 am,” the RVIPF said in a media release on Wednesday.

“Those individuals are asked to come forward and provide information about the accident. The family members of Young are hoping for an accurate account of the events which led to his demise,” it added.

    Don’t you think it is high time you try something new rather than ignorance? 2021 is fast approaching, be careful the universe does not deport your behind from the face of the earth because just like us all, you are living on borrowed time. I would like to give you some choice words but I have to keep it clean for the media.

    What do you think this country is, a State? This is also an island that can drop and sink in 99% of the other Caribbean islands with not even a glimpse of its existence.

  5. @@justice says:

    Yet everyone moving from their big Islands and running to these tiny islands.

    We small but we large.
    Check yourself.

  7. Divisiveness says:

    People of the Caribbean, don’t be fooled. That comment you read everyday about “island people vs Belonger” is a deliberate attempt by either a white hate filled UK or US national to stir and create strife and hatred between the two people.

    Don’t fall for the bait. We have been divided enough already.

    One person, maybe two, are making a mockery out of all you people EVERY day and every story. They go online news sites and see how they can derail the conversation by commenting about deporting island people. Then they laugh at you bozos. Do not comment. Do not like. IGNORE it!! The TOPIC is what cause the young man’s death. Please people. Help the family with information. Help the Police.

    Billy old Billy
    Billy old billy, billy old billy
    Man with the words of wisdom

    They found his long black coat
    On the banks of the river
    ‘Cause he never came back

    In it’s pocket they found notes
    He’d written some time ago
    About his so called friends
    It read

    Love all your friends
    But never trust any one of them
    Which got me thinking about
    My very own friends

    Mirror mirror on the wall
    Who is the deadliest of them all
    I ask you now-tears in my eyes
    Mirror mirror on the wall
    Who is the deadliest of them all
    I ask you now-tears in my eyes
    Mirror mirror on the wall
    Who is the deadliest of them all
    I ask you now-tears in my eyes

    Billy old Billy
    Billy old Billy, Billy old Billy
    Man with the words of wisdom

    See them coming
    Hear them talk
    Never believe a word they say
    He told me…

    RIP Lucky Dube.
