Savius Clervoyant

Was reading the Palm Beach Post a few minutes ago.

At 2:30 yesterday afternoon, a man named Savius Clervoyant pulled over on the shoulder of I-95 to change a flat tire. His wife, Iverta, was in the car. As he kneeled, a Ford F-350 came along and slammed into him.

Clervoyant was 59.

Life is so incredibly unpredictable. You think everything is great, it’s not. You think everything is terrible, it’s great. You’re looking forward to Christmas Eve, your car gets a flat. You do what you’ve done before—get out to fix it.

You no longer exist.

Think about his wife. Think about Celestino Japngie, the 65-year-old driver of the vehicle that killed him.

I never heard of Savius Clervoyant until today. When I Googled him, I found this story from five years back. He was a Haitian immigrant. He was the father of three girls. He suffered from sickle cell anemia.

And, like that, he is gone.

So sad.

  1. off topic, and may be insensitive, but re: your hall of fame article, i dont understand why edgar martinez gets knocked for his playing career.

    if mlb and the stupid mlbpa allows for a position to exist such as the designated hitter (i hate the position, btw) why is it held against a player for playing that LEGAL position? did edgar martinez grow up wanting to be a dh? no, but the coach or manager put him in that position because he thought thats where the team would thrive the best. adn the team did thrive for a bit.

    to knock edgar martinez or david ortiz for playing a position that is legal in baseball only to hold it against them after they retire is bullshit. should we not elect any american league pitchers because they dont bat for themselves? whats the difference in logic? i would love your opinion on this because i do respect your opinion and while i ask this question a million times to other sports writers, no one has given me the time and respect to respond with anything.

    please, i would like to know why the sportwriters hold it against a player for playing a position that is completely legitimate.
