What was supposed to be a happy outing ended in tragedy about 8:30 p.m. on June 26 as Geovaughn, 11, crossed the Kingsland main road in Mandeville, Manchester. The incident occurred hours after news emerged that the boy was placed at Black River High School in his home parish of St Elizabeth. The youngster was flung several metres by the Mitsubishi motor car, killing him on the spot. Relatives and the community of Burnt Ground in Santa Cruz are now inconsolable as they battle the grief of losing their 'star'.
