The father of dancehall star, Michelle Downer, more popularly known as D’Angel has died after being hit by a vehicle Tuesday morning.
Clive Downer was reportedly walking along Old Harbour Road when he was struck by the vehicle. Police are searching for the motorist involved.
D’Angel found out the news while preparing to perform at the IRIE FM In Di Area Road Show; receiving a call about the incident. She was vividly upset after hearing the news and forced to leave.
“He didnt deserve to die like that, like an animal,” she told Loop Jamaica from the hospital. “He was a good man who was well known in Spanish Town.”
She has since been surrounded by family and friends who have been trying to console her.
