Woman run over by Truck –Family want answers Featured

The family of 25 year old Nikki Phillip, who was run over by a truck during a celebration in Antigua last week, says they are searching for answers.

Phillip, a resident of New York, USA, arrived in Antigua on July 24, 2016. Her mother Novella Phillip says, “Obviously it was an accident but somebody has to talk to me”.

Phillip’s mother and one-year-old son are waiting in Antigua until authorities release her body on tomorrow. But Phillip says Antigua police have not given them any information on an investigation.

“They don’t talk about the driver, they don’t talk about the company that owns the truck, they haven’t addressed regulations,” Phillip said. “No one from government agencies has contacted us — nothing.”

Tashie Phillip, Nikki’s cousin, told CBS2 they were together at around 9 p.m. last Tuesday when a music truck typically involved in Carnival celebrations ran Phillip over.

“It went over her feet first then it was going over her head then it reversed and it came back down and I knew it was over,” Phillip said.

Those trucks are required by the festival to have barricades around their back wheels, CBS2 reported. The festival minister says he does not know if the truck was following regulations at the time of the incident.

“There were some trucks that were barricaded, but this one wasn’t. There should be barricades around all trucks,” Shaynah Browne, Phillip’s cousin, said.

Instead of trying to place blame, the family is trying to find closure.
