Fourteen year-old Donte Benjamin, grandson of Attorney General MP Steadroy “Cutie” Benjamin, is among three males hospitalised with fractured limbs and cuts after an early morning crash on Friday.
The AG told OBSERVER media his grandson sustained a broken left femur and broken pelvis, while Atiba Barnes, 19, who was in the rear seat of the same vehicle, A 44719, sustained a broken jaw and cuts and bruises.
The driver, Makiva Otto, 20, also sustained cuts and bruises and was complaining of pain about the body.
Police sources told this newsroom that the three males were traveling west on Sir Sidney Walling Highway some time after midnight when two vehicles traveling from the opposite direction, began overtaking another one.
Sources said that upon realising they were in his path and too close, Otto swerved to avoid a collision.
As a result, he lost control of the car and it veered off the road and crashed into a lamp pole.
The drivers who were reportedly in his lane, sped off.
Benjamin described the incident as unfortunate and said he’s glad his grandson and two friends survived.
He said he’s also thankful for all the prayers offered and well wishes received since the incident.
