Barbados has recorded another road fatality. 35 year old Shane Jamol Belle died in a single vehicle accident early this morning in Dash Valley, St George.

A statement from the Royal Barbados Police Force reported that the accident occurred sometime after 2 a.m. on Saturday August 12th, along Dash Valley Road, St George, which resulted in the death of Belle and injuries to his two friends Michael Payne 24 years, and Rasheed Phillips 22 years, all of Dash Valley.

Preliminary investigations revealed that Belle was a rear seat passenger in a motor car being driven by Phillips, along Dash Valley Road, St. George. The driver of the car lost control of the car, and as a result struck an embankment causing the car to overturn.

Two fire tenders, and eight officers under the command of Divisional Officer Errol Gaskin responded to the scene of the accident.
