Young man dies after being hit by car
A 23-year-old Diego Martin man died after being struck by a car while crossing the Wendy Fitzwilliam Boulevard on Thursday night. Police said around 9.20 pm Jeron Emmanuel of St Lucien Road, Diego Martin, and an unidentified friend were crossing the busy roadway near Garnet Street, Diamond Vale, when he was hit by a car heading west. Emmanuel was thrown onto the windshield of the car before landing on the road.
The driver of the vehicle stopped to render assistance to the injured man. However, by the time emergency health services personnel arrived on the scene Emmanuel had already succumbed to his injuries. Investigators from West End Police, located nearby, arrived on the scene shortly after and temporarily detained the driver of the blue Toyota Corolla for questioning. A breathalyser test was administered, but the driver was not found to be intoxicated. He was released after giving police a statement.
