The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing a fatal ac­ci­dent which oc­curred on Thurs­day, Au­gust 31st, 2017, about 3:00 a.m. at Marisule, Gros Islet. The in­ci­dent in­volved one mo­tor vehicle, a grey Nis­san X-trail, which was trav­el­ling south­bound from Gros Islet to­wards Cas­tries. Ini­tial re­ports in­di­cate that the mo­tor vehicle veered off the road and sub­se­quently caught ablaze.

Of the two oc­cu­pants, the driver sus­tained mi­nor in­juries and was con­veyed to the Vic­to­ria Hos­pi­tal.

Ley­sel Charlery Deter­ville, a twenty-seven-year-old res­i­dent of Bishop’s Gap, Cas­tries, the front seat pas­sen­ger, was trapped be­neath the flam­ing mo­tor vehicle. She was pro­nounced dead on the scene by a med­i­cal prac­ti­tioner.

This in­ci­dent brings the num­ber of road fa­tal­i­ties recorded for the year 2017 to eleven.
