A motorcyclist died after being knocked off his bike during a hit-and-run crash in Trelawny, as the carnage continues on the roads in the parish this year.
The deceased has been identified as 40-year-old Clayton Hines, otherwise called ‘Rat’, of Scarlett Hall, Falmouth in Trelawny.
Reports are that about 5:45am on Sunday, Hines was driving his motorbike along the Bogue Gate Main Road towards Salt Marsh in the parish, when it is alleged that he was knocked off by a car.
The police were summoned and Hines was seen lying on his back on the roadway.
He was taken to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Personal from the traffic department at the Falmouth Police Station are investigating the incident.
One of the latter casualties occurred late last month when 61-year-old Ralbert Kerr of Hague district, also in Trelawny, died as a result of injuries he sustained during a hit-and-run accident along the Martha Brae Main Road in the parish.
