Two men killed crossing highway
Two men were killed last night as they attempted to cross three lanes of traffic and were struck by a vehicle heading East on the Beetham Highway.
Police officers cordoned off part of the highway and diverted motorists on to the Priority Bus Route.
The accident, which occurred around 7.15 p.m., caused a traffic pile-up.
Up to last night, the men had not been identified.
In an unrelated incident, an unidentified man was gunned down last night at Canada, Laventille by unknown assailants.
His killing brought the murder toll for the year so far to 262.
Besson Street and CID officers are continuing investigations into both incidents.
