A Penal grandmother was killed after she was struck by a car while crossing the Solomon Hochoy Highway on Saturday night.
Anita Benjamin, a mother of four and grandmother of nine, of San Francique Road, died at the scene.
According to a police report, the crash occured at around 7.40 p.m. when an Audi A6 driven by a 39-year-old Belmont customs broker was proceeding south along the Solomon Hochoy Highway.
The driver told police when in the vicinity of Indian Trail he observed Benjamin standing in the south-bound lane under the overpass in an area which was not properly lit by street lights.
The driver said he swerved to the right to avoid Benjamin but still collided with her. District Medical Officer Dr Readdy pronounced Benjamin dead at the scene.
Benjamin was identified by her common-law husband Micky Ramlal.
