PAN ROYALTY: Ken ‘Professor’ Philmore died at the San Fernando General Hospital yesterday, six days after he was in a horrible accident on the Solomon Hochoy Highway.

A HIT-and-run accident is what claimed the life of Ken “Professor” Philmore contrary to earlier reports. In eulogising her brother, yesterday, Antoinette Philmore said he did not run off the road as first reported.

“He was struck from behind. He told us this with his own mouth,” Antoinette told the Newsday after the funeral held at the National Academy for the Performing Arts, San Fernando. She said she did not know if police were pursuing the case from this angle, but he was able to give the statement to the cops before he passed.

“He never lost consciousness after the accident and was able to give a statement to the police and to the doctors and tell them that he was hit from behind,” she said as she thanked the police for their prompt response after the accident and taking him to the hospital.

It is good that "Professor's" sister has enlightened the public. There was a previous unfortunate and unfounded remark by a contributor on this forum about the competence of the doctors. At the time I found it in poor taste and this revelation "Doctors and nurses, you tried your best, but God is in charge" .supports my opinion.

Tragic, does anyone know if he was wearing a seatbelt and the airbag deployed?
