A motorcyclist died in a collision Sunday morning at the intersection of Rousseau Road and Texton Road in Kingston.
The deceased has been identified as 32-year-old Jermaine Ball, a labourer of 4B Myrrhvilla Road, Kingston 5.
Reports are that about 1:30 am, a white Toyota Hilux police service vehicle was travelling along Rousseau Road towards Cross Road.
The driver of the Toyota Hilux reportedly indicated to make a right turn onto Texton Road, when a motorcycle being driven by Ball attempted to overtake the police service vehicle.
This reportedly resulted in the bike colliding into the right side of the service vehicle and Ball – who was not wearing a helmet -falling to the ground and sustaining head injuries.
Ball was taken to the Kingston Public Hospital where he died while undergoing treatment.
The Denham Town Traffic Department is investigating.
