A 19-year-old St. John resident was found dead early Monday morning at the scene of a one-vehicle accident in the V.I. National Park on North Shore Road near the Caneel Bay overlook.
Police and Emergency Medical Services ambulance personnel responding to a 911 call found Brook Gallop, a resident of Upper Carolina, dead at the scene of the accident. He had been thrown from the vehicle, observers said.
Gallop apparently had been the only occupant of the Suzuki Sidekick jeep that police said had overturned.
Passersby first attempted to assist Gallop after coming upon the accident scene around 2:35 a.m., then called 911 to report the matter.
A police report said the victim's body was taken to the Myrah Keating Smith Clinic, where Gallop was pronounced dead by Dr. Elizabeth Barot at 4:15 a.m. Monday. According to the report, the cause of the accident remained under investigation Monday.
