A twenty-three-year-old man died, and a female believed to be in her late teens was in stable condition after a vehicle accident at Choc in the wee hours of Friday morning.

Police identified the deceased as Sherwin Charlemagne of Rock Hall, Castries.

He was the driver of the vehicle.

According to reports, a grey Mitsubishi overturned after slamming into a utility pole at about 1:50 am.

Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) Communications Officer Stacy Joseph said the Gros Islet fire station responded after receiving a distress call.

She said the responders found a female who seemed to be in her late teens on the ground in the presence of bystanders while a male in his mid-twenties was trapped in the vehicle.

Emergency personnel extricated him and rushed him and the female passenger to the OKEU Hospital, where a medical practitioner pronounced him dead.

The SLFS spokeswoman said the female was in stable condition.

The Island’s latest road death has plunged the Charlemagne family into mourning.

The deceased’s aunt, Cindy Charlemagne, told reporters that she raised Sherwin, and he was the baby of the family.

“Everybody who knows Sherwin, or as he is commonly known ‘Drizzy’, everybody thinks that I am his mom,” Cindy explained.

She said Sherwin grew up with her and her mother but later went to Rock Hall to live.

Cindy recalled that he produced the song ‘Clap, Clap, Clap For Your Birthday’ and other songs.

“He is going to be dearly missed. He was like my son. In fact just two days ago my neighbour and I were talking and I was saying that my home, when I die, belongs to Sherwin,” the aunt said as she broke down in tears.

Cindy said she has no confirmed reports regarding what took place.

However, she acknowledged that Sherwin used to drive at a fast pace.

“This is a strong message to people out there who speed on the road,” the aunt told reporters.
