PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — Haitian police are searching for the driver of a truck that slammed into the vehicle of a U.S. Embassy employee and killed her.
Police inspector Jones Josius said Wednesday that the driver of a truck carrying fertilizer fled after the head-on collision. The driver had been passing another vehicle on June 26 when he crashed into the Land Cruiser carrying USAID Foreign Service officer Antoinette “Toni” Beaumont Tomasek. Two others were injured.
Tomasek was taken to a hospital in the city of Saint Marc. Josius said she died on Saturday in a hospital in Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince.
Tomasek was 41. The California native had just begun working for the U.S. Agency for International Development in May as a community health specialist. She was survived by her husband and two children.
