SETTING POINT, Anegada, VI- It was a sad evening on the normally quiet sister island of Anegada on Saturday January 27, 2018 when word started spreading of a fatal motor scooter accident next to the roundabout at Setting Point.

And our newsroom can confirm that the deceased has been identified as 44-year-old Andy Dela Cruz, a national of the Dominican Republic.

Moments after the accident, Mr Cruz was pronounced dead on the scene. His body had to remain on Anegada in a makeshift morgue until the Marine Unit of the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) went to Anegada the following day, Sunday, to pick up the body, which is now at Peebles Hospital morgue in Road Town.

The accident was reported to the RVIPF around 7:45 P.M. on Saturday and the lone police officer on Anegada responded to the scene. It is our understanding that the deceased, Mr Cruz, worked for Potter By the Sea, Bar and Restaurant.

The Board of Directors, Management and Staff of Virgin Islands News Online express condolences to the immediate family of Mr Andy Dela Cruz and other loved ones.

    Really thought that the outer islands of Anegada and Virgin Gorda had a morgue or some sort of regridgeration for times like these. Wow. These islands are populated enough to warrant a decent medical facility. A life is a life regardless and it's time we up our game.

      We don't know that first aid would have saved his life. He probably hit that wall at the roundabout with great impact which could have caused him an instantaneous death.

    It should be crime to have one police at any out station working especially over seas. OMG.. They clearly not prepared for the unexpected...Sad though..
