Car Thief Crushed by Overturned Truck Along Spanish Town Road

A man was crushed to death this morning when the car that he reportedly stole slammed into a truck, which overturned along Spanish Town Road, Kingston 11.

The dead driver has not yet been identified. He was the sole occupant of the car at the time of the crash.

The truck driver and a sideman were injured and taken to hospital.

Fire rescue workers and the police were called to the scene after the bizarre occurrence, and they quickly surmised that the driver of the car was speeding.

Police reported yesterday morning that a man who was driving a Toyota Axio motor car crashed it into the garbage truck, tilting the disposal vehicle which then overturned onto the car.
