Share post:

For the second straight year, tragedy struck on Maundy Thursday – the day before Good Friday – claiming the life of one man and leaving another fighting for his.
Preconco Limited employee Terrence Clarke, 41, of Hothersal Turning, St Michael, died on the job yesterday, just a short distance away from the Lower Estate scene of a vehicular accident that claimed the lives of two-month-old Jakayla Crichlow and 17-year-old Akalia Weir on April 21 last year.
Also injured yesterday was Gregory Hill of Bibbys Lane, The City, who suffered a broken collar bone among other injuries, and was said to be bleeding through his nose, ears and eyes before being rushed to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
According to an eyewitness report, both Clarke, a former supervisor at the company where he had worked since its inception in 1991, and Gill were struck by steel plates that became detached after some bolts loosened.
