A still-unnamed woman became the country’s latest road fatality after she was struck by a vehicle on the Friars Hill Road on Sunday morning, September 4.

While walking on the road at about 3:20 a.m., reports say, the woman was struck by the vehicle, which was traveling from south to north.

The Police reportedly are still investigating the circumstances surrounding the accident and, up to Sunday night, had not publicly identified the victim.

She is the second pedestrian to have lost her life on the Friars Hill Road this year, 2022.

Meanwhile, family members of an elderly Yorks woman are reporting that she disappeared from her home on Saturday night, September 3, and they have been searching for her since.

The 85-year-old woman, who goes by the moniker “Dolly,” reportedly suffers from Alzheimer’s disease and lives alone.

Relatives are concerned that the accident victim could be the missing woman. They are reportedly expected to go to the funeral home today, September 5, to see if a positive identification can be made.

Additionally, the search also continues for 26-year-old Kevorn “Sardis” Bailey, who has been missing for a week now.

Bailey was last seen on Monday, August 29, in the vicinity of the Everyday Service Station, near the Ministry of Agriculture headquarters on Independence Drive.

He is described as dark in complexion, of medium build, and approximately 5 feet 3 inches tall.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to contact the nearest police station, or his father, Gregory Bailey, the Director of Agriculture.
