Shot PSV driver dies
Victor “Preacher Man” Walton died yesterday after being on life support for nine days.
The St James man, a part-time public service vehicle operator who usually worked the Oistins, Christ Church, route, was discovered last week in St Lucy with two bullet wounds in his head.
Police said they received a report on the night of December 1 about a minibus that crashed into a tree near the junction of Maycocks and Husbands.
It was then that Walton, 56, of 2nd Avenue, Haynesville, St James, was discovered with the injuries and taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
His sister, Juliette Walton at that time described her brother as a “quiet person who liked to go to church” and enjoyed “reading, watching television, and studying”.
She was puzzled as to how he ended up in St Lucy since she knew he was initially working the Christ Church route, but she was later told he was on the Checker Hall route.
