The 2 passengers were apparently husband and wife and were riding a black Honda moped along one of the main roads. The tragic accident occurred at around 3:20pm, they skidded off the road and sadly the woman died at the scene. The husband was taken to Hospital but also died later in the day at around 5pm. It’s not clear on the nationality of the 2 passengers.
