Trio killed in Woodland crash
Up to late yesterday, police were calling on the public to identify the bodies of three men fished out of the Woodland river yesterday following a vehicular accident.
Police said at around 1.30 pm someone reported seeing a car submerged in the river along Rahamut Trace. San Fernando police and Mon Repos fire officers responded and found the black Peugeot car in the water with three men trapped inside.
Police believe the car crashed into the bridge and plunged into the river. However, an eyewitness said there is no bridge along the agricultural road. The man said he was walking in the area when he saw the car upside down in the river and called for help. He said it appeared that the men skidded on an oil puddle in the road.
Officers said the name Sunil is tattooed on one of the men. All three aew estimated to be in their early 20s.
Investigators were not sure how long the men were in the water and suspect they were not from the area. The bodies were taken to the mortuary of the San Fernando General Hospital.
