He was the only passenger in the vehicle, which appears to have wrapped around the post on impact.
Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the accident, which is the latest in a string of horror crashes on the nation’s roads.
A delivery man was decapitated during a motor vehicle accident along the Toll Gate main road in Clarendon earlier this week. Relatives have identified the dead man as 42-year-old Rexon Haffenden of Havana Heights in the parish.
Haffenden was driving his delivery truck along the main road towards May Pen, when a low bed trailer transporting a heavy duty vehicle, travelling in the opposite direction, got too close to the delivery truck. Eyewitnesses say that a sharp instrument, dangling from the heavy duty vehicle, sliced off the top of the cabin of the delivery truck and decapitated Haffenden.
A week earlier, there was a horrific accident in Hanover when a Toyota motor car, heading towards Hopewell, crashed into a tree. The driver and a passenger of the vehicle died on the spot.
