Statement from Environment and Housing Minister on United Sanitation accident
Hon. Kenred Dorsett, Minister of The Environment and Housing.

Reports reaching my ministry confirm that during the early hours of Saturday, 9th December 2012, a tragic accident involving a United Sanitation vehicle claimed the life of a young woman. United Sanitation is contracted by the Department of Environmental Health Services to collect garbage.

The matter is under active investigation by the police and a more detailed account of the circumstances surrounding this tragedy will be provided, as soon as additional information is made available to us.

I mourn the loss of life of a such a young person with her entire life ahead of her. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of the deceased during this very difficult period.
