(BVI News) While confirming that two men were killed in a motor vehicle accident on the island of Virgin Gorda last night, the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) indicated that the bodies were found in the vehicle that seemingly plunged some 150 feet downhill.
As was reported by BVI News Online last night, the accident unfolded in the Savannah Bay Beach area and involved two expatriates.
Persons familiar with both crash victims have identified one of them as 31-year-old Dexter Cottoy, a native of Guyana, who is also known as Decky.
The other victim – according to residents – is Calvert Brown, also known as Buju, from St Vincent and the Grenadines.
The RVIPF, in a media release this afternoon (November 29), said initial inquiries indicate that the two men were traveling from the Valley to North Sound when the accident took place.
“The vehicle was found approximately 150 feet downhill of the cliff, which overlooks the Savannah Bay Beach. The bodies of the two were found inside the vehicle,” said the RVIPF.
“Virgin Gorda police officers – along with Fire and Rescue Services, medical personnel from the Nurse Iris O’Neal Clinic, Rasta Trucking, L&S Garage, employees of Yates and Associates and officers of the BVI Port Authority – were all in attendance and assisted at the scene following the accident.”
Investigations are ongoing, the RVIPF further said.
