A 30-year-old man lost his life last night in a fatal car crash on York Street in St George’s, that resulted in the arrest of the female driver on suspicion of impaired driving.

Police and first responders were dispatched to the scene around 11:40pm on Saturday, October 28th, on York Street near the junction with Fort George Hill.

A spokesman said: “It appears that two people, believed to be a 29-year-old Warwick woman and a 30-year-old Devonshire man, were in the vehicle when it struck a wall.

“Both were taken to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital via ambulance where sadly, the 30-year-old man was later pronounced dead.

“At last check the 29-year-old woman was receiving treatment for injuries that are not believed to be life threatening.

“She is expected to be arrested on suspicion of impaired driving as inquiries continue.

“Identification of the deceased is anticipated in due course once next of kin has been notified.”

Police diverted traffic away from the area for over two hours while the scene was processed.

A full investigation into this fatal crash, the 12th of 2017, is underway and any witnesses are urged to contact the Roads Policing Unit on 247-1788.
