Speed, weather cited as factors in triple fatal crash – Rocky Mount Telegram

The Political Agitator response: I have not been able to get into this because for some reason I felt like this was going to get ugly. For some reason I just don’t like how the funeral arrangements are being handled. I felt the mother of Kyol’s children should not have to go to 2 different funerals since Britt and Battle are her cousins. Did anyone take in consideration what this young lady will have to endure on tomorrow? Well this is just my ignant ass opinion and I stand behind my ignant ass 100%. I normally just post my condolences to the family on the loss of their love ones but folks have been talking to me about this accident so I am posting my opinion.

Rocky Mount police released a report Friday revealing factors believed to have led to the triple fatal car wreck last week in downtown Rocky Mount.

“The Rocky Mount Police Department’s Traffic Enforcement Crash Reduction Unit’s investigation revealed that inclement weather, excessive speed and tire condition were factors in the crash,” a press release stated.

The results of toxicology tests on the victims conducted by the medical examiner’s office are pending.

Officials also determined through dental records that Jason Javon Britt, 29, was driving the 2001 Lincoln LS, which left the road around 2 a.m. on May 16 and collided with a brick building. The three men were killed when the vehicle burst into flames. (Source: Read more)
