Remains of the wrecked vehicle in which three men lost their lives. ...

An early morning trip yesterday to set up a bar for Carnival celebrations in Arouca turned tragic when three men lost their lives in a vehicular accident.

Dead are Kareem Romain, 26, of Bel Bird Avenue, Arima, Cliff Croffon, 24, of Bois Bande North Eastern Settlement, Ojoe Road, Sangre Grande and 28-year-old Randell Boyce.

According to a police report, at about 5.30 am yesterday, the trio were travelling in a silver Frontier driven by Croffon West along the Eastern Main Road, Wallerfield, when the driver lost control of the vehicle. The Frontier skidded off the left side of the road and crossed onto the right side, before crashing into a poui tree. All three men reportedly died on the spot. A farmer who was at the time watering his cucumber plants said when he saw the van coming towards his garden, he dropped the watering can and ran when he heard the loud crash.

He went to the men’s aid, but was unable to do anything except to call the police. He reported seeing parts of the vehicle flying in the air. As he got closer to the vehicle he saw the three men pinned to the vehicle, lifeless.

Firefighters had to use the “jaws of life” to remove the mangled bodies from the wreckage.

A party of police officers headed by Sr Supt Rajindranath Maharaj, Sgt Mario Robain and PCs Shawn Bernard and Anil Andrews of the Arima police responded.

Arriving on the scene the police immediately called the EHS while the Fire Service arrived on the scene headed by Ag FSO Shield of Arima.

District Medical Officer Vidya Maharaj viewed the bodies and ordered their removal to Forensic Science Centre for a post-mortem.

Sgt Robain is continuing inquiries.
