Football officials in Dominica say the national team's coach and a player have died in a traffic accident on the eastern Caribbean island.

Dominica Football Association spokesman Gerald George says coach Kurt Hector and player Norran Jno Hope died early Friday while traveling to the capital to prepare for a game in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

George tells state-owned DBS radio that Hector was driving a car that fell into a large hole in the community of Pond Case following days of heavy rains.

He says the team will no longer play in the upcoming Windward Islands Football championship.
