CAUTION

DRIVERS HAVE BEEN WARNED to exercise greater caution when they are overtaking any vehicles, especially those letting off passengers at a bus stop.

It has come from police public relations officer, Acting Inspector Roland Cobbler, hours after 13-year-old Princess Margaret Secondary schoolboy Hananiah Reeves died on Tuesday night at Campaign Castle, St George. He was struck by a vehicle overtaking a minibus from which he had just alighted around 6:40 p.m.

This was the second time a schoolchild was killed in such circumstances along Highway 5 this year. The first was in February when 12-year-old Springer Memorial student Destiny Thompson lost her life when she was struck by a vehicle as she attempted to cross the road after leaving a minibus.

Reeves was the 20th person to die on the nation’s roads for the year, compared to ten for all of 2016.  (JS/LK)
