Thirty one year old Elisa Hunter who sustained major head and body injuries after she was knocked down near mile 8 on the George Price Highway on Tuesday, died around 5:00pm yesterday at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. As we reported, Hunter had just a-lighted a west-bound passenger bus around 9:00 Tuesday morning and was in the process of crossing the highway, when she was knocked down by a black 2015 Prado assigned to Minister of Foreign Affairs Wilfred Elrington. Police say Minister Elrington was in the vehicle at the time of the incident, but the vehicle was being driven by 25 year old Amir Garcia, the Minister’s driver. Since the incident, a notice of intended prosecution has been served on Garcia. The Foreign Ministry says that Elrington visited Hunter on Tuesday and that he had promised to ensure that all appropriate assistance is provided to her. Elrington is also quoted as stating that he regrets the unfortunate traffic incident.
