Montego Bay, Jamaica (McKoy’s News) – Two persons lost their lives and two other admitted to the Cornwall Regional Hospital in critical condition, following their involvements in a motor vehicle accident, which occurred in the vicinity of the Sangsters International Airport in Montego Bay on Saturday, March 10.

The police have given the deceased names as 24-year-old Odain Smith otherwise called “Panty Pig” and 25-year-old Sheldon Hylton,  House Keeper of Bamboo lawn in Lilliput.

Two other men, a 24-year-old laborer and another 20-year-old man are presently in hospital in critical condition.

On reaching a section of the Queens Drive, intersection to the Donald Sangster’s  Airport, the car picked up a skid and the driver lost control of the vehicle which tore down a large signboard, then crashed through a concrete structured sign which read ” Welcome to Montego Bay”,  before crashing into another pole.

Both Hylton and  Smith were thrown from the vehicle and died on the spot. The other two occupants were trapped inside the vehicle. They were later taken out and transport to the Cornwall Regional hospital where they were admitted.

In the meanwhile,  several angry residents from the Lilliput community told our news team that, they are calling on the relevant authorities in Montego Bay to clean the gravel from the streets because that is what lead to the death of the men.

Also, they are concerned because only a few days ago, two other men from the community lost their lives in an accident along the Rosehall main road.
