The Traffic Department of the Royal St.Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force confirmed that the latest fatal accident occurred at Georgetown in the early hours of last Sunday morning.

Reports indicated that Hull was walking along the Georgetown main road when he was struck by a minibus.

When SEARCHLIGHT visited Hull’s relatives on Tuesday, November 10, 2009, his sister-in-law Vern Williams said he had suffered injuries to his head, a broken neck and spine, as well as broken arms and legs.

“He could not have survived those injuries,” said Williams.

Meanwhile, David Hull, Kenroy’s brother, was quite an upset man when SEARCHLIGHT asked him to share his sentiments on the passing of his brother.

“I feel real bad about this thing. It’s time for the police to seriously look into accidents like these,” said Hull, as he called for tighter traffic management and control legislation to be introduced.

“I feel real bad for my brother,” David added.

“The government has stepped up on several laws. They need to step up on the one that deals with persons who are losing their lives on the roads,” said David.

He said his family now has to face the challenge of burying his brother, and doing so without assistance is unfair.
