Truck driver dies in North Coast Road accident

A 61-year-old man is dead as a result of injuries sustained this morning during a road traffic accident.

According to initial reports, Ranjit Ramkissoon was in a truck which was proceeding in a westerly direction along the North Coast Road, when for reasons unknown, he lost control of the vehicle.

Based on the marks on the hillside along the roadway, it is believed that the truck hit the side of the mountain before it flipped on its side.

This left Ramkissoon pinned and suffering severe injuries.

Unfortunately, he succumbed to said injuries.

More on this as it becomes available.
