A tragic vehicular accident during the early hours of this morning claimed the lives of two eighteen-year-old sisters and their nineteen year old friend.

The three died while they were on their way home from a night club in south Trinidad.

The two other persons involved in the accident are said to be in a critical condition at hospital.

Twin sisters Khadijah and Khertima Taylor, 18, could only be described as fun and outgoing girls.

The sisters who attended St Joseph Convent in San Fernando were preparing for their final CAPE exam sometime next week.

But unfortunately the twin sisters will never get to write their exam.

Khadijah and Khertima were thrown out on impact, their heads completely smashed on the roadway.

C news obtained a photo of the girls believed to be taken out moments before they left the club.

The sisters’ aunt Donna said she last spoke to her nieces last week Thursday.

Waddell said her nieces loved to dress up and go to parties

Kafiya Gill, 19, a University Of The West Indies student later died at hospital due to head and internal injuries.

Gill's father who is separated from her mother said he knew his daughter was having a hard time dealing with the separation and was lonely at times.

C news has been informed that the driver Anthony Balkissoon, 20, and Atkinson Derrick, 19, are warded at the San Fernando General Hospital in critical condition.

Reports say the driver may have been speeding and under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident.

A second accident happened an hour earlier in central Trinidad.

A 19 year old man of Lange Park, Chaguanas died after the car in which he was traveling in crashed into a concrete barrier and landed in a drain.

Reacting to both incidents, Arrive Alive’s Brent Batson has expressed his deepest condolences to the relatives of accident victims.

Mr. Batson appealed to parents to be mindful not because their children own a driver's license means they are professional drivers.

Mr. Batson said that parents must not put too much pressure on their children to return home before curfew hours.
