INDECOM Continues Investigation into Lionel Town fatal crash


The Independent Commission of Investigations, INDECOM, is reiterating that the specific causes, sources and nature of injuries sustained by persons in the accident in Lionel Town, Clarendon last Saturday have not yet been established.

Three persons died and six others are nursing injuries arising from the incident which involved a fatal motor vehicle collision and discharge of Police firearms.

The Commission says it awaits the official medical reports to confirm that information.

The Commission said during the preliminary examination of the vehicle, a single projectile strike mark was identified at the left door frame. No firearm was reported as recovered from the scene.
