Cyclist Quincy Jones dies on bike
QUINCY JONES WAS born to ride.
The well-known biker and race car driver loved the thrill that came with high speeds. However, yesterday Jones took his last ride as he perished in a horrific early-morning crash at Welches, St Thomas.
The mangled blue and black Ninja bike told its own story. Jones died on the scene, becoming Barbados’ fourth road fatality so far this year.
