LESS THAN TEN MINUTES after thinking about what he would get his dad for Father’s Day, Shawn Clarke got a call from his brother that their father had been involved in an accident.

Warwick Sargeant, a former barber, of Yearwood Road, Black Rock, St Michael, would have celebrated his 80th birthday on July 4, but a trip he took for 40 years ended in his death yesterday.

According to police reports, Sargeant, a talented goalie for the popular Blackspurs club in his heyday, was riding his bicycle along President Kennedy Drive, St Michael, at its junction with First Avenue Thomas Gap around 7:40 a.m., when he was involved in a collision with a car driven by Dwayne Tull, of Waterford, also in St Michael.

The elderly man, who was pronounced dead at the scene, was the seventh person to die on the roads for the year.

Clarke, who heads Supreme Counselling for Personal Development, and who usually counsels people in similar situations, said it was particularly hard seeing where his dad died.
