A 23-year-old man is dead following a motor vehicular accident on Friday night in Laventille.

The deceased has been identified as Darren Pemberton of Chinapoo, Morvant.

According to police reports, around 11:50 pm on Friday, Pemberton was driving a Nissan B14 motor vehicle along the Eastern Main Road, when upon reaching the vicinity of Stanisclaus Street, Laventille, he came into contact with a KIA Sportage motor vehicle.

The Sportage, LoopTT was told, was being driven at the time by Donell Herbert - a firefighter attached to the Piarco Fire Station.

The B14 was mangled as a result of the accident and the ‘Jaws of Life’ were needed to extricate Pemberton from his vehicle.

He died at the scene.

Herbert, police said, suffered lacerations to his forehead and left knee.

A passenger in Herbert’s vehicle - identified as Wendell Horsford of La Horquetta – broke his right ankle.

The two wounded men were taken to the Port of Spain General Hospital.

More on this as it becomes available.
