26-YEAR-OLD MAN DIES IN MOTORCYCLE CRASH

A 26-year-old St. Croix man was killed Sunday afternoon after the motorcycle he was driving on Centerline Road slammed into a concrete retaining wall.
The accident occurred around 3 p.m. and claimed the life of Al Alibocas. He was pronounced dead of massive internal injuries at the Juan F. Luis Hospital less than a half-hour after he arrived there by ambulance.
Police believe Alibocas was headed west on his Yamaha cycle and lost control when he elevated the bike on its rear wheel. The cycle ended up in a ditch just in front of Bates Trucking.
A similar accident on St. Thomas about a week ago claimed the life of Winston "Malik" Leonard. He died of massive injuries when his bike slammed into the concrete base of a Veterans Drive streetlight after he lost control of the cycle.
