According to police reports, Tacourdeen was proceeding north along the Fairfield public road, on motor cycle CH 4278.

The driver of the pickup was also injured after his vehicle toppled. He was also rushed to the Suddie Public Hospital and was believed to have been in a stable condition.
The mother of the deceased, Ernestine Tacourdeen told this publication that someone who saw the body on the road identified her son.
“I just went and saw him lying on the road side dead and we were told that they carried away the driver.”
