An elderly female cruise visitor was run over by a 10 wheeler truck and killed in the Bridgetown Port this morning.

Police Public Relations Officer, acting Inspector Rodney Inniss, said the fatal accident reportedly occurred about 10:50am in the area known as the Break water located to the western side of the deep water harbor.

The UK national was a passenger onboard the cruise ship Saga Sapphire.
