Crowds of people numbering in the hundreds have turned out today for the burial of the five Clare Valley men who perished in the Old Sandy Bay vehicular crash.
The congregation was also addressed by Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves, Leader of the Opposition Godwin Friday and Parliamentary Representative for South Leeward Nigel ‘Nature’ Stephenson.
The funeral came to a close around 3 pm.
Family friends and members of the community followed the hearses on a long walk to the Chauncey cemetery after which the caskets were removed and transported by mourners to the burial site.
The funeral procession featured a music truck playing gospel tracks.
The five men are being laid to rest side by side.
