St. Maarten – A woman was killed in the Pelican Key area yesterday in a serious car accident at around 2:15pm. The central police dispatch received a call informing them that a female driver was stuck under the vehicle and was not showing any signs of life. Several police patrols, the police traffic department, the forensic department, ambulance, and fire department were immediately sent to the scene to investigate what had taken place.

The preliminary investigation by the police traffic department indicates that the female driver, for reasons unknown, had lost control of her vehicle – license plate 3690AAA – while driving down the hill, hitting into a rock wall, turning over, and throwing the victim from the driver’s seat. The vehicle then landed on its right side on top of the victim.

The paramedics attempted to revive the victim without any success. Dr. Bekele pronounced the death of the victim at the scene. The police traffic department is still investigating to determine the exact cause of the accident.
