Suspected bandit burns to death

A man was burnt to death this morning following a vehicular accident in Wallerfield.

CNC3 news understands the incident occurred at around 6 am.

The man was allegedly driving a stolen Tiida motor vehicle along Antigua road when it slammed into a blue Hilux van.

The collision caused the Tiida to erupt into flames, trapping the man inside the car.

He died at the scene.

The identity of the victim was not confirmed.

Police say the vehicle matched the description of the one which was involved in a robbery earlier this morning.

That incident left the victim nursing stab wounds.

He was taken to hospital where he remains.
