(JAMAICA OBSERVER) — A Jamaican athlete is dead after a fiery crash on Hope Road in St Andrew this morning.

Reports reaching OBSERVER ONLINE are that the athlete is Jordon Scott, who was travelling with MVP clubmate Michael Campbell.

Campbell, who represented Jamaica’s 4×100 relay team in the heats of the World Championships earlier this year, survived the crash and is currently in hospital.

The police are reporting that 21-year-old Scott was the driver of a white Honda Civic, which spun out of control about 4:45 am today. The former Petersfield and Manning’s High athlete, who hailed from Savanna-La-Mar, was a student of the University of Technology (UTech).

Scott’s coach, Machel Woolery, says his most memorable moment was him leading Petersfield to victory in the 4x400m relay over favourites St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS) in 2015. The 400m runner had a personal best of 48.01.

The vehicle reportedly crashed into a utility pole before being engulfed in flames. Scott’s body was severely burnt.
