A Southern Trelawny family is now mourning the loss of a loved one after there was a tragic freak accident.

Dead is a man who has only been identified as ‘Andre’ from the Warsop community of Trelawny.

The accident took place in adjoining community St Vincent. Paparazzi Jamaica understands that the truck, which had only three passengers including the dead man, lost its break and got out of control which caused it to overturn.

It is alleged that the man who died tried to act quickly to prevent his demise but as he jumped off the truck the vehicle fell on him and crushed him to death. The driver of the vehicle and other passenger were unarmed even though they were still inside when the vehicle overturned. The driver has only been identified as ‘cheese’.

Up until news time police were still not on the scene.
