BREAKING: Woman killed on ETH

One woman dies following a crash on the Esterley Tibbetts Highway.

The woman was a pedestrian, according to police. The incident happened Thursday (12 April) morning.

Police have not released the woman’s name, saying they continue to try to notify the next-of-kin. They describe the victim as a 56-year-old woman from the Philippines. 

The southbound lane of the ETH near the Yacht Club roundabout remains closed to traffic as investigators remain on scene.

Details are few at this time but police have confirmed it is a fatal crash.

The incident is causing major delays to southbound traffic coming from West Bay. Police are allowing southbound traffic through into George Town using the ETH northbound lane.

Northbound traffic on the ETH is being diverted onto West Bay Rd.

Police say they’re also aware of video footage taken at the scene which shows the victim and other parties involved. 

(Editor’s Note: Police originally stated the victim was a man before issuing a correction. We’ve made the necessary changes to this story.)
