TOURIST STRUCK AND KILLED ON AIRPORT ACCESS ROAD

A homicide investigation by Virgin Islands Police continues into the death of a man who was struck Sunday night by a vehicle on the airport access road on St. Thomas.
Acting Police Chief Jose Garcia said Monday that 41-year-old Ryan Krog, a visitor to the island from Denmark, was struck and killed by a compact car driven by Vanessa Josaint at 7:36 p.m. Sunday.
Krog and his wife were crossing the two-lane access road from south to north when the vehicle struck him.
The driver of the vehicle also suffered injuries as the result of her jumping out of her vehicle after Krog was struck down.
Josaint was treated at the Roy L. Schneider Hospital for an abrasion to her right knee, a laceration to the arm and injury to her fingers.
Garcia said in a statement released at midday Monday that the Krogs were staying at a hotel in the area.
The accident occurred on the main road adjacent to the Island Beachcomber Hotel.
As of the time the press statement on the fatal automobile accident was issued, no charges had been filed.
