A MALE driver who was involved in a traffic accident that occurred on Charles Saunders Highway on February 6 died in hospital yesterday, police said.
The accident also killed a 32-year-old North Andros woman earlier this month during the head-on collision, which happened shortly after midnight.
Speaking earlier this month, officer-in-charge of the Traffic Division, Assistant Superintendent Craig Stubbs said firefighters had to use “the Jaws of Life” to extract the woman, who was a front seat passenger. He also said previously that police believe the accident occurred while one of the vehicles was attempting to “overtake” another travelling in the same direction.
The dead woman was earlier identified as Yosheakan Yolette Vivido, of North Andros. ASP Stubbs said Vivido had arrived in New Providence for a job interview the next day.
“EMS personnel were called to the scene, just east of Sadie Curtis Primary School, after police received reports of a traffic accident,” ASP Stubbs said earlier this month.
“Information is that two vehicles, a 1999 Nissan Primera driven by an man with a woman passenger and an adult male passenger collided with a 2005 Chevrolet Malibu driven by a male.
“One of the vehicles was attempting to overtake when the collision occurred. Both vehicles received extensive front-end damage. EMS services responded and firefighters used the Jaws of Life to remove the woman front seat passenger and the male driver of the Nissan. The female was pronounced dead on the scene.”
The male victim, who died yesterday, was being treated in hospital.
