The Trelawny police have identified the three persons who died as a result of injuries they sustained during a horror car crash involving two cars along the Duncans main road in Trelawny on Monday, April 30.

The deceased have been identified as 78-year-old Dorothy Wellington of a St James address; Nicholai Dennis, 26, of Mount Salem, also in St James; and 24-year old Quwayne Grant of a Kingston address.

Reports are that about 1:45 p.m., a Nissan Tiida, which was heading in the direction of Falmouth, collided with a Toyota Wish which was being operated as a taxi, and was going in the opposite direction.

Dennis and Grant, the two occupants of the Nissan Tiida, were reportedly burnt beyond recognition after the car burst into flames following the impact of the collision.

The elderly female passenger from the Toyota motorcar received multiple injuries and also died on the spot.

A police source indicated that the Nissan Tiida had been rented from the owner in Montego Bay, St James.
