Car plunges off top floor of Price Plaza carpark

A 37-year-old Valsayn man is in hospital after his car plunged off the top floor of the carpark at Price Plaza, Chaguanas.

Darren John was rushed to the Chaguanas Health Facility around 3.20 Wednesday morning with spinal injuries.

He was later transferred to the Mt Hope hospital.

Reports indicate that the incident occurred after John lost money at a casino in Chaguanas.

A close family member told police that John had lost $1,300 at Five Star Casino.

There is no confirmation that the accident was linked to the casino loss as police have not yet determined if a mechanical problem was responsible.

The vehicle crashed through a concrete wall and plunged over 30 feet to the ground.

John was rescued by fire officers of the Chaguanas Fire Station.
