UPDATE: Vijai Persaud Is Road Fatality Victim


Investigations are ongoing into a fatal traffic accident, which occurred around 11:55 pm on Saturday 12th September, on Friars Hill Road, in the vicinity of Sir Wright George Police Academy.

The allegations are that Vijai Persaud of Hodges Bay, who was the driver a silver/grey Honda Step Wagon C 16005, was travelling from west to east on the said road at a high rate of speed. He reportedly lost control of the vehicle, and ran off the southern side of the road, causing the vehicle to flip several times, before it came to a stop.

His body was thrown from the wreckage and was found lying face down.

A medical doctor arrived on the scene and pronounced him dead approximately 12:31 am on Sunday 13th September. His body was removed to Barnes Funeral Home.

There have been several accidents on that road alone, including one as recent as yesterday.

The FHR remains under construction under the UK Funded Road Rehabilitation Project.

Last week, the police warned residents to slow down after 67 traffic accidents were recorded in one week alone.

  1. Friars Hill Road does not run from West to East except when travelling up the hill toward Cedar Valley turn off. It is a North – South Road.

  2. Condolences to the family. Never easy to lose a lice one. He was probably hustling because its pass curfew

    One correction to the article. Travelling on Friars hill road is always north to south or south to north. Cant be east to west

  3. A man died and possibly gone to hell and this is what you all worrying about. Which direction to road to hell possibly runs!!!!!!

    • Really?? You didn’t have to say that….chuuppsss. Are you God? Why are you judging him… Where is your soul destin for Heaven or Hell?? Asking for a friend…

      • I never said the man gone hell. You all are just as confusing like people asking about where the road runs. I said it is POSSIBLE he gone hell. Since when the word POSSIBLE means something is said in the affirmative?

  4. First of all let me say condolence to the family and friends. But yes on a more clearer note it should be from north to south or south to north, all now i am baffled on the said direction.

  5. I dont think police need to patrol 24/7 to stop road fatalities. Nobody under the age of 18 has a driver’s license. These adults needs to act responsible!
