Thursday, September 24th, 2015. Aaron Humes Reporting: While they continue to investigate, Police in Precinct 4 believe initially that a combination of high speed and rainy conditions on the road caused this morning’s fatal traffic accident on the Philip Goldson Highway.
According to Superintendent of Police Linden Flowers, police responded around 4:20 to Mile 2 on the highway across from the Puma Gas Station and were able to extract 27 year old Jamelia Arnold from the Mitsubishi Endeavour which had crashed into the fence surrounding the perimeter of Jose Shoman’s residence.
However, driver 35 year old John Jeremy Gordon died on the scene of fatal head and body injuries.
Police observed a puddle of water on the road but saw no skid marks at the scene; however, they still suspect that speeding and a slick road played a role.
Arnold continues to recuperate in hospital as police investigation continues.
