By Aaron Humes: While police continue their investigations, it is likely that speeding around a curve may be to blame for a fatal accident along the Old Northern Highway near Lucky Strike on Sunday.

ACP Hilberto Romero, Regional Commander, Eastern Division, said as much in speaking to the press today about the tragedy that befell Martin Swift, Senior, and his family: “Information is that the driver of that [Mercedes-Benz] vehicle is Martin Swift who was along with several of his family members when he lost control of the vehicle and the vehicle flipped. Several of them received injuries and they were taken to the KHMH for treatment where Martin Swift Jr., seven years old, succumbed to his injuries.

They are presently receiving treatment at the KHMH and they are expected to recover. The area where the accident occurred, there’s a curve and yes, we believe speeding was the cause.”

The accident took place between Miles 28 and 29, causing the vehicle to overturn. Investigations continue.
