Birthday celebration ends tragically

27-year-old, Rasheed Pollard’s birthday celebration ended tragically when he got into a traffic accident on the Philip Goldson Highway just before 3 o’clock this morning.  Reports are that Pollard was heading to Belize City from Ladyville when the vehicle he was driving collided into one of the concrete-based lamp posts on the side of the highway.  Love news spoke with Bernadine Lewis, Pollard’s aunt who said that he was the only child for her sister.

Bernadine Lewis, Aunt of Rasheed Pollard: “Yesterday he celebrated his 27th birthday and I think he had fun for his birthday and he enjoyed life because that is what he does. He was out with friends and family and was on his way home and that was just his time to go and all we can do is pick up the pieces from here and move on. Rasheed is love and he will be missed and we can’t cheat destiny. Rasheed was a jovial person, he loved sports, he would make anyone smile. He would walk into a room and he would light up that room with a smile and everybody would say ‘yeah that’s Rahseed.’ He’s always making jokes, always trying to mend fences with anybody that are trying to go the other way.”
Pollard was traveling in a black Mitsubishi vehicle.  A post mortem examination shows that Pollard died due to traumatic shock due to multiple blunt force trauma.  Pollard leaves behind two children.
