Cop’s life lost yards from grand’s home
WHEN ELAINE WELCH, of Civilian Road in Bush Hall, St Michael, heard a loud crash just after 6 a.m. yesterday, her first thought was that her “old” house was falling apart.
Little did the 80-year-old know that she was about to lose her beloved granddaughter, Alexis Edwards, 29, of Pioneer Road, Bush Hall, as the vehicle in which she was a passenger had struck the wall of the nearby St Hill Funeral Home.
The accident took place at the Bush Hall Main Road/Civilian Road junction.
“I hear the commotion and didn’t know that it was my own granddaughter sitting down dead,” said Welch.
The constable attached to the District “A” Police Station, who was off duty at the time, was the front seat passenger in a double cab L200 driven by Kirk White, 28, of Rock Dundo Heights, St Michael.
