Two teenagers were killed in a mid night car crash on 20 January. 19 year old Bradley Cyril and 18 year old Brandon St Omer were traveling south bound toward the capital along the Vide Boutille thoroughfare when tragedy struck.
Initial reports from first responders indicate Cyril was behind the wheel when the vehicle [registration 6307] veered into the median barrier and spun out of control.
Cyril and St Omer were pinned inside the mangled wreck after the vehicle eventually came to a rest several meters away from the initial impact.
Two fire units and an ambulance responded to the scene of the crash. According to the Fire Service, an unresponsive Bradley Cyril succumbed to injuries at hospital. Brandon St Omer who rode in the passenger seat had to be extricate from the vehicle. Despite St Omer’s faint vital signs he too succumbed to injuries.
The mid-night crash is the first recorded fatal road accident of 2018.
Authorities are working to determine the cause of the crash.
