Police officers have named the father and son killed in a hit-and-run in Grouville over the weekend.
Dean Richard Lowe (48) and his son, Charlie (11), were hit by a vehicle as they walked along Rue de Fauvic in the direction of St. Clement’s Church on Saturday evening.
All Emergency Services headed to the area of the crash and the pair were taken to A&E, but both sadly died from their injuries later in the night despite extensive efforts to save them.
"Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Dean and Charlie and we offer our sincere condolences to them at this very sad time," the force said.
A 28-year-old man – who has not been named – was arrested in St. Helier yesterday on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, and failing to stop and report the collision. The force said this morning that he was still in custody.
Debris from a white vehicle was found on a nearby road by investigating officers over the weekend.
Following an "extensive search", a white van with "substantial damage" to its front was located on Sunday morning. The 28-year-old man was arrested afterwards.
Officers are continuing their appeal for witnesses or individuals with more information. In particular, they would like to hear from anyone living in the area with private CCTV or anyone who was driving in the area between 21:00 and 21:40 with dash-cam footage.
Anyone who may be able to help is urged to call 01534 612612, selecting option 2 then option 4.
