A man has been killed in an early morning traffic accident along the dual carriageway on Tortola Saturday morning, February 22.
Police have identified him as 30-year-old Kehinda Frett of The Sound in East End.
Law enforcers said details of the accident are still unclear but BVI News understands that the fatal incident involved a four-wheel all-terrain vehicle — also known as a quad bike — and happened near OneMart Superstore before daybreak.
When our news centre visited the scene, police had already cordoned off the area. The bike was seen wedged in a corner just off the road and was immediately near what appears to be a pool of blood that had splattered on the roadway.
An investigation has been launched into the accident which comes less than a month after two major accidents that left one man dead and another seriously injured. Those crashes happened hours apart.
