Woman killed after vehicle ploughs into stall

An accident along the Southern Main Road, California on Thursday has claimed the life of a woman and left four others nursing serious injuries.

The incident took place near Gilbert Park, when a vehicle lost control and ploughed into a stall.

The dead woman has been identified as Prematee Laltoo, a vendor of Railway Road, California.

Shortly after 1 pm on Thursday, Laltoo, her boyfriend Hakeem Bain and Bain’s mother, Alana Bain, were at their stall near the National Energy Skills Centre (NESC), when a black Suzuki Vitara crashed into the stall.

Laltoo died on the spot.

Alana Bain and the driver, a prison officer, and his brother, who was a front-seat passenger, were all injured and taken to the San Fernando General Hospital, where they are receiving emergency treatment.
