WILLEMSTAD – Three joggers who participated in a sponsor run yesterday in Curacao were killed when a 23-year-old man drove with high speed into the group.

The victims, a 22-year-old woman, a 67-year-old man both from Curacao and 58-year-old Dutch woman, were walking in a group of 50 people nearby the World Trade Center in Willemstad to raise funds for a local scouting. The driver drove through after the accident but was blocked by bystanders who followed the car, where police officers could arrest the man on the spot.

How the accident could have happened remains unclear until further investigation has been done. The man was not under the influence of alcohol.

The three victims died on the spot.
