At first there were reports that the accident was a hit and run as some of the people who were there, didn’t know that the driver took Mr. Downer to the Spanish Town Hospital, before he went to the Police Station and reported the accident. And D’Angel was asking if people who had information about the incident to tell what they knew about the driver, so that he could be brought to justice.
But eventually the police’s Corporate Communication Unit (CCU) revealed that the accident was not a hit and run and they said it happened along the Old Harbor main road at about 9 pm. on Monday. A Toyota Mark X motor car was driving along East Street on the Old Harbour main road when 70 year old Mr. Clive Downer tried to cross the road and he was hit down.
He was admitted to at the Spanish Town Hospital as he was living on Young Street in Spanish Town, at the time of the accident. But he succumbed to his injury the not long after he was admitted.
A lot of friends from the music fraternity have been expressing their condolences to the entertainer since they heard the news that her father died. Those who were close to her, knows that he was never an absentee Dad, he was always there for D’Angel and his passing has affected her in a very bad way.
