The taxi that killed the Victor Dixon student yesterday.

The second form student of the Victor Dixon High School who was this morning hit by a taxi along the intersection of Manchester Road and May Day Road, has died.

The student, whose name is being withheld at this time, succumbed to her injuries at approximately 5 p.m. at the Mandeville Regional Hospital.

Reports are that at approximately 7:30 a.m., the student stepped out of a taxi and proceeded to cross the street at the intersection, when a taxi travelling in the opposite direction hit her and flung her on to a Honda CR-V travelling towards Mandeville.

There has since been a call for traffic lights to be erected at the intersection.
