Kingshill , St. Croix USVI - On May 6, 2019, at around 3:14 pm, in the vicinity of the Alfredo Andrews School, a male driver traveling in a black SUV on the Mon Bijou road made a left turn to traverse onto the School’s road, struck a vehicle, veered left and struck a 14-year-boy, Brendel William, who was a student at the John H.
