A 50-year-old man was killed on the Beach Road on Tuesday after the pickup truck he was traveling in slammed into the security railing on the side of the road. The victim was seated next to the car's driver. The driver was lightly injured.
When paramedics reached the scene the passenger was fully conscious. He died of his injuries almost instantly.
