A man was killed and a female pillion passenger seriously injured during a crash in Rodney Bay, Gros Islet this morning, police officials have confirmed.
The motorcyclist has been identified as Clement Alexander, 24, of Arundell Hill, Castries, and the pillion passenger Michelle Prospere, police said.
The crash occurred at around 2:45 a.m. today (October 12) close to Bay Gardens in Gros Islet.
Reports are that Alexander, also known as Burms, lost control of his motorcycle, veered off the main road and plunged to his death. Both him and the female passenger fell off the bike, but Alexander sustained more serious injuries.
An eyewitness told St. Lucia News Online (SNO): ” A group of friends were coming from Gros Islet and heading towards Castries, when a bike went over the ditch at Bay Gardens Hotel. A female was badly hurt on the bike and the guy supposedly died on the spot.”
