Two more people have died in car accidents, bringing the total deaths for the year to 131.
One of the victims, 20-year-old Gasparillo electrician Nicholas Rampersad, was killed in a car crash yesterday after celebrating the nation's 50th anniversary of Independence with his relatives.
Rampersad, of Fourth Street, Harmony Hall, was thrown out of his vehicle and died at the scene, police said.
Police said around 3.45 a.m., Rampersad and his cousin Bradley Rampersad had gone to purchase doubles near their home.
Rampersad was driving along Harmony Hall Road when his car collided with another vehicle, hit a lamp post and the vehicle flipped over several times.
Bradley Rampersad is warded at the San Fernando General Hospital.
His uncle Berry Rampersad said earlier that day that Rampersad was liming with his relatives in their neighbourhood.
"They were across by my sister and liming. Not spreeing or anything like that, but it was a 50th anniversary lime. They just decided to get something to eat and that was it," the uncle said.
He said his family had planned to have a barbecue yesterday to celebrate several birthdays in the family, as well as Independence day.
Rampersad was a trainee at the National Gas Company for almost two years.
The other victim is a 19-year-old Princes Town mechanic who was also killed instantly in a collision near his home on Thursday.
Stephan Mohammed, of Lothians Road, died after the car in which he was a passenger crashed into a truck.
Mohammed was seated in the front passenger seat in a car driven by Chika Barca, also of Lothians Road. Another passenger, Sastri Ramoutar, 28, was seated in the back.
Police said around 2.40 p.m., Barca was driving along Daisey Road, Corinth, near Ste Madeleine, when the car collided with a truck.
The car ended up underneath the vehicle, police said.
Barca and Ramoutar are now patients at the San Fernando General Hospital.
Mohammed's aunt Lisa Mohammed said her nephew had gone to fix a friend's vehicle and was returning home when the accident happened.
