Mother Still in Shock after Seeing Daughters Mowed Down by Hit-and-Run Driver in Montego Bay

Jamaica News, Montego Bay: The mother of a 2-year-old infant who is now dead and a 10-year-old daughter who is presently being treated at the Cornwall Regional Hospital, mowed down by a hit-and-run driver in downtown Montego Bay, St James on Tuesday night, say she is still in shock over the entire accident which has now destroyed her family.

The dead baby girl has been identified as 2-year-old Sasha Gaye Dennis, while her injured sister has been identified as 10-year-old Hanesea Palmer, student and both of Wooster district in Johns Hall, St James.

Mother of both children, Diana Whitely was short for words while talking to our news team.

She stated how the driver of another motor car stopped to allow her and her children passage across the roadway and immediately the driver of the ill-fated motor car came from behind and mowed down her children.

The broken-hearted mother mentioned that two men were traveling in the car and when her children were mowed down the man sitting in the passenger seat jumped out, but he was called back inside by the driver who sped away, while her two-year-old daughter was still underneath the car.

Reports by the police are that about 7:00 p.m., both children and their mother, 34-year-old Diana Whitely and two other siblings were walking along the Jimmy Cliff Boulevard, while on their way back from the beach.

On reaching the vicinity of the Eastbound lane that separates the Jimmy Cliff Boulevard and Howard Cooke Boulevard, the four children and their mother were in the process of crossing the roadway, with 10-year-old Hanesea carrying her 2-year-old sister, when they were both mowed down by the driver of the motor car who sped away.

Both Hanesea and Sasha Gaye sustained injuries to their upper bodies, resulting in Sasha Gaye being killed on the spot and Hanesea rushed to hospital where she was admitted in serious condition.

The police have now launched a manhunt for the driver of the vehicle, who is believed to be from the parish of St Thomas.
