The deceased has been identified as Tristan Sohai, while his friend, Muneshwar Jairam, 28 –both of Number 57 Village- is critical.

According to sources, the accident occurred around 20:30 hrs last evening while the two were crossing the public road. The hire car, which was reportedly speeding, was heading north on the public road when it collided into the victims.

Sohai was pronounced dead on arrival at the New Amsterdam Public Hospital, while Jairam was admitted for treatment.
