February 09, 2019

On February 9, 2019 at around 1:00 am, officers along with emergency medical attendants responded to a two car collision which occurred in the vicinity on the Rattan Road and Sion Valley intersection and the Old Rusty Tank.

A green Jeep Wrangler was heading westbound on Rattan Road while a blue Isuzu Rodeo was heading north making a right turn eastbound.

The driver and passenger in the Jeep, Roy M. George, and Thomas Q. Lavell, succumbed to their injuries after impact with the tank, knocking it over.

The driver in the other vehicle (the blue Rodeo) sustained minimal injury.

The deceased driver, Roy Marcus George, 29 year old, and the passenger, Thomas Quinton Lavell, 35 year old, were contract workers at Lime Tree Bay from Texas.

This auto collision remains under investigation by the VIPD Traffic Division.
