Former Reggae Boy Peter Cargill died in a trafffic accident last evening. At the time of his untimely death he was serving as the head coach of the Waterhouse Football Club. There are reports that other persons were injured in the accident but so far no one else has succumbed to their injuries.

Peter Cargill was an important part of the Rene Simoes coached Jamaica Football Team that reached the 1998 World Cup Finals in France. In his defensive midfield position, Peter marshalled the transition from defence to attack and was a central figure in the formation used by Rene Simoes at the time.
