Two suspected street car racers and a party promoter were taken into police custody on Monday morning after a man was struck and killed by a car along the Ewarton main road in St Catherine.
Reports are that the deceased was a patron at a party along the roadway when the driver of a red 1989 Nissan Sentra motor car, that was involved in a drag race with a 2008 silver Toyota Fielder, lost control of the vehicle which crashed into several parked vehicles before hitting the unidentified male who was standing along the roadway.
The man died on the spot while the drivers of the vehicles and the event promoter were taken into police custody.
The deceased has not yet been identified.
More details later.
