At least two people, including a secondary school student, were killed and several others injured following a vehicular accident in St Vincent on Sunday.
Reports are indicating that a third person died, but this has not been confirmed.
The authorities said that the accident occurred in Langley Park on the island’s northeastern coast and that the two confirmed fatalities have been identified as Clevique Huggins and Denroy Baptiste, both from Magum, a community northcoast.
Huggins was a student of Sandy Bay Secondary School.
The circumstances surrounding the accident are not clear but the reports indicated that the vehicle was carrying several persons who were returning home after an event.
This is the second multiple-fatality accident in St. Vincent and the Grenadines in two weeks.
On September 30, Frank Simon, a 60-year-old pastor, and Laverne Young, 50, died when the vehicle in which they were travelling, plunged over a 180-foot embankment in the Gordon Yard area, after a brake failure.
Ezra Pompey, Young’s nephew, who was driving the vehicle, survived the crash.
