Officer-In-Charge of the Traffic Division Assistant Superintendent Craig Stubbs said at the time that Lundy died on the scene.

“Around 6:30 a.m. the Police Control Room received information of an accident on the Tonique Williams-Darling highway corridor involving a pedestrian,” he said.

“Officers responded and met the lifeless body of an adult man lying in the east bound lane of the thoroughfare. EMS personnel arrived and pronounced him dead. Earlier reports said the man was walking and crossed from the northern side to southern side of the street when the Toyota Sprinter which was travelling eastbound, collided with him.”

He said the driver remained on the scene following the incident.

“The driver was a bit shaken so we allowed him to receive medical attention,” ASP Stubbs said.

“He is cooperating and was interviewed. He would have been suffering from shock.”
