Unidentified St. Croix Man Dies In Single-Car Accident On Melvin Evans Highway
FREDERIKSTED — An unidentified man was killed in a single-vehicle accident on St. Croix late last night, authorities said.
On December 16, at 11:10 p.m., the 911 Emergency Call Center dispatched officers to the Melvin H. Evans Highway, in the vicinity of Estate Cane Carlton, to investigate a single-car accident at 11:10 p.m. Thursday, the Virgin Islands Police Department said.
“The preliminary investigation revealed that the male driver — operating a white 2009 Ford Ranger heading westbound — lost control of the vehicle, causing it to overturn,” VIPD spokesman Toby Derima said.
The driver, not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the vehicle and died on the scene, according to Derima.
The driver has yet to be identified by police.
