Jamoya Browne, the 28-year-old man who fell from the back of a truck at the beginning of August, died as a result of multiple injuries he sustained in the accident, a post-mortem exam has concluded.

The examination was conducted by Government Dr. Petra Miller-Nanton, last Friday, September 9, at the Holberton Hospital Morgue.

She reported that the cause of death was intra-cerebral haemorrhage, two multiple skull fractures, and three severe head injuries.

At the conclusion of the post mortem, a death certificate was issued; this will be signed off by the coroner, paving the way for Browne’s funeral service and burial.

Browne, of Lovelace Road, Grays Farm, fell off the truck on Friday, August 5 while on his way home from work. He reportedly lost his balance as the vehicle was travelling through the Fig Tree Drive area.

The young man succumbed to his injuries exactly one week later, on August 12, after he had been put on life support in the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit.

  1. Insp. Rodney Ellis was on state media promoting INCREASED FINES for not wearing a seatbelt. What are the rules and regulations for anyone riding in the back of a truck where there is no seatbelt?

  2. Make it illegal to ride in the tray of a truck…and fine the driver!
    All it takes is driving over a pothole, or a bump in these roads for a disaster to occur.
    Driver should face heavy fines.
    Yes, I know that ‘back of de truck’ is sometimes the only mode of transport in villages, but injuries and death will continue if nothing is done.
