(Trinidad Express) An Arima teenager died when his car spun out of control and crashed on Saturday.
At about 5 a.m., Malick Alexander, 19, was driving his silver Mitsubishi Lancer east along the Churchill Roosevelt Highway when, upon reaching Maloney, he lost control of the car.
The vehicle then crossed the median and came into contact with a Ford Ranger van proceeding in the opposite direction.
The Lancer, police said, hit with such force that the car was almost split.
Alexander was thrown from the car and landed about 20 feet away.
He died on impact.
Police suspect that he was not wearing his seat-belt at the time.
The driver of the Ford Ranger, the Sunday Express was told, sustained minor injuries.
