The deceased cop has been identified as 20-year-old Daemoy Witter, a police constable assigned to the Negril Police Station in Westmoreland.
Reports from the Green Island Police are that about 3:30 pm, Constable Witter was driving a Honda Civic motorcar when on reaching a section of the roadway he allegedly lost control of the vehicle, which collided into a Toyota Coaster transporting tourists.
A Toyota Altis which was being driven by another officer also crashed into the Honda Civic. Constable Witter was pronounced dead at hospital while the injured officer and a tourist were treated for minor injuries and released. One Canadian national remains in hospital for observation.
Pictures circulating online show the mangled remains of Witter’s Honda Civic in the aftermath of the accident.
