31 year-old Cheadair Mellow of Pichellin has died from injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident which occurred at Jimmit on Sunday afternoon, according to the police.
Mellow got trapped when the Nissan car in which she was travelling ran off the road on the section of the Warner Road where it bypasses Jimmit and connects with the road leading to Petro Caribe. She was eventually freed by police, fire and emergency services personnel who got to the scene fairly quickly, according to Loftus Durand who was at the scene of the accident and spoke to DNO shortly afterwards.
The firemen were able to remove Mellow from the front of the car where she was trapped, by cutting out one of the front doors of the damaged vehicle which had flipped over.
Durand said he was informed by a nurse who was at the scene, that the injured woman was still alive when she was removed from the vehicle and taken to the Princess Margaret Hospital. He said that the three other people who were in the car when the accident occurred, were also taken to the PMH for medical attention. As of now, Dominica News Online (DNO) does not have any information on the extent of their injuries.
The police have promised to provide more information when it’s available.
