She recalled that as someone involved in the care of the elderly, she was at Entrept attending classes when she received a call indicating that her son had been involved in an accident.
Perpie said she asked to be excused and went to the accident scene.
“When I reached there I see my son lie down there – I started screaming and crying,” she recalled.
The mother of the deceased said her son’s death was painful to bear as he left children behind, one of whom lives with her.
She disclosed that the death has been especially hard for her husband who suffers from high blood pressure and passed out when he heard the news.
Construction worker Jason St Luce, 34, of Rock Hall, Castries, was the passenger in a truck which ran off the road at Marigot and overturned after the driver lost control of the vehicle, apparently as a result of a faulty brake.
The accident occurred at around 4. pm on Tuesday.
According to the police, the death of St Luce represents the 5th road fatality for 2017.
