Pastor killed in hit-and-run
NASSAU — Police were last night still trying to find the driver of the truck that struck and killed a popular pastor as he participated in his church’s walk-a-thon on Carmichael Road early Saturday.
The victim was identified as Dr. Kendal Stubbs, a father of three daughters. Church members said he was in his late 40s.
Superintendent Ken Strachan, who heads the traffic division of the police force, told The Nassau Guardian late yesterday police did not have a licence plate number but were following leads.
Strachan said Stubbs was struck by a gray or white coloured truck while walking east on Carmichael Road with parishioners. The vehicle was heading west.
“Whether or not he turned or whether or not he saw this truck coming, we don’t have that information, but he sustained a blow and I’m advised that he was rolled over by this truck and left on the side of the street,” said Strachan, adding that about 200 people were in the walk-a-thon.
When The Nassau Guardian arrived on the scene just west of Gladstone Road, Stubbs’ body was still lying on the side of the road as grief-stricken church members stood in apparent shock.
The accident happened down the street from their church, Remnant Tabernacle of Praise, which is located near the corner of the Carmichael Road Detention Centre. (Nassau Guardian)
