TWO brothers and one of their cousins lost their lives when the vehicle they were travelling in crashed into a bar at the corner of New and Charlotte Streets, Port of Spain early yesterday.
The men have been identified by relatives as brothers Kevon "Gogg" James, 22; Anthony Stephan "Chicky" James, 20; and their cousin Kerry "Pie Peng" Joseph, 19; all of Upper Wharton Street, Laventille.
Patrick Rennie, the driver of the Nissan B-12 vehicle and friend of the deceased, up to late yesterday was listed in critical condition at the Port of Spain General Hospital.
Kerry, Kevon and Anthony died at the scene of the crash and fire officers had to cut the vehicle to allow undertakers to remove the bodies of the victims from the wreckage.
The car crash occurred shortly after 4 a.m. while the men were returning to their home from a party they attended at a club in Maraval.
Rennie, who also lives at Wharton Street, Laventille, reportedly lost control of the vehicle while proceeding south along Charlotte Street, causing the car to crash into The Original Soup Home Restaurant and Bar at the corner of New and Charlotte Streets.(read more here)
