The family of Barbados’ latest road fatality, 63-year-old Michael Johnson, were at his St James residence yesterday mourning his death and providing for the dozens of ducks and rabbits on his farm.
Johnson died at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital yesterday after a two-vehicle collision that occurred around 5:45 p.m. on Tuesday on Pleasant Hall Road, St Peter.
According to police reports, Johnson, who suffered a broken right foot and internal injuries, was the driver of a van that was involved in a head-on collision with another van driven by Troy Clarke, 37, of St Joseph. Clarke’s passengers, an 11-year-old and a six-year old, were not injured.
Siblings Maurice and Marie Johnson told the WEEKEND NATION that they were unsure as to where their father was heading at the time of the accident. He was trapped in his vehicle and had to be extricated by members of the Barbados Fire Service using the “jaws-of-life” equipment.
Maurice Johnson said that his father was a kind individual. (AH)
