Man dies in car accident
A 34-year-old St Philip man is Barbados’ latest road fatality.
Winston Newton of Chapel Land, died this afternoon after being involved in a three-car smash on Sunbury Road several hours earlier in which his wife, Kathy Newton, and three other St Philip residents were also injured.
The accident occurred around 7 am.
Newton was trapped in the vehicle he was driving and had to be freed by the Barbados Fire Service which used the Jaws of Life to get him out so that he could be rushed to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
Barrington Butcher, 50, was driving one of the other cars in which his 15-year-old son Trey Butcher was a passenger. The two residents of Ebenezer complained of pains about their body.
The third vehicle was driven by Jason Alleyne, 31, of Emerald Park West. He said he had pains in his neck after the smash-up. (DP)
