A vehicular accident at the Maurice Bishop Highway in St. George’s has claimed the life of a 12-year old Secondary School Girl.
Ayeanna Modeste succumbed to severe head injuries at the General Hospital five days after being knocked down by a car.
The accident took place on February 15, moments after Modeste came from school.
The J. W. Fletcher Secondary School Student had just dropped off from a passenger bus when she was hit by a car that allegedly was overtaking the minibus.
A family source told THE NEW TODAY Newspaper that Modeste was making her way to the Blessed Sacrament School that had their athletic sports meet when the accident took place.
Modeste was laid to rest at the Grand Anse Cemetery on Wednesday following a Funeral Mass at the Blessed Sacrament Church in Grand Anse.
