Two men died and another was seriously injured when the pick-up truck they were travelling in crashed in Princes Town yesterday.

Police said Evans Bailey, 36, of Pleasantville and Anderson Lallo, of St Charles Village, Princes Town, died upon impact. Khalil Belgrave, 38, also of St Charles Village, survived and was at the San Fernando General Hospital receiving treatment up to yesterday evening.

According to a report, Bailey was driving his white pick-up along St Charles Road around 1.30 am when it picked up a skid. Witnesses told police the pick-up overturned before rolling into a resident’s driveway, knocking down a gate and wall. The impact smashed the driver’s side of the pick-up.

Insp Coraspie and officers of the Ste Madeleine Police Station responded along with firefighters, who had to cut the vehicle open to retrieve Bailey and Lalloo’s bodies. Investigators are trying to determine what caused the vehicle to skid.
