Plant operator dies in horrific car accident
An operator of PCS Nitrogen suffered a horrific death yesterday when the car he was driving struck a metal barrier on the highway slicing his body into two parts. Police said pieces of Andre Boodoo’s body remained in his vehicle after the car was removed from the Corinth Overpass in Ste Madeleine.
Police said Boodoo of Cedar Drive, Pleasantville, was on his way home when the tragedy struck. Less than a mile from his destination, Boodoo diverted from the southbound carriageway of the Solomon Hochoy Highway and attempted to exit onto the Corinth Overpass, shortly after 4 am.
However, his car struck the barrier which entered through the front windscreen and impaled him. The lower half of his body was found in the trunk of his car. A team of officers led by ASP Basdeo and Cpl Beharry visited the scene. Boodoo’s father Johnny and brother Adrian arrived a short while later.
Both were too distraught to speak. Boodoo’s cousin Kerry Henry said the deceased worked as an operator with PCS Nitrogen. He was not married and did not have any children. An autopsy will be conducted today at the Forensic Science Centre. Investigations are continuing.
