Man Dies After Truck Turns Over Near Bioche
One family is now grieving following an unfortunate fatal accident.
According to Police Public Relations Officer, Inspector John Carbon, at about 3pm on Friday October 19, 2012, a KIA truck registration number TJ187 was being driven by Qu Jian Wei, a 44 year old Chinese national.
Mr. Wei who is employed with Chinese Railway 17 on the West Coast Road Project, was travelling northwards when the truck’s right rear tire deflated.
This then caused the driver to loose control and the vehicle rolled into a ravine.
At the time of the incident there were four other occupants aboard the vehicle.
42 year old Winston Lewis of Massacre along with the others was transported to the Portsmouth Hospital for treatment.
However, Winston was pronounced dead upon arrival by the district medical practitioner.
All the other occupants sustained minor injuries and were treated and discharged.
A coroner’s inquest will be convened to be followed by a post mortem examination.
