Psychiatrist’s car topples in Corentyne trench
Psychiatrist attached to the National Psychiatric Hospital, Dr Mayda Grajales, escaped with minor injuries after her vehicle ended up in a trench on the Corentyne.
She has been trying to overtake a vehicle on the Susannah Public Road on the Corentyne when she ended up in a nearby trench just after 13:00 hrs on Saturday.
According to eyewitnesses, the doctor, who has a private practice at Port Mourant, was heading towards New Amsterdam when she lost control of her Rav-4, PNN 4253.
Dr Mayda was quickly rescued from the vehicle by public- spirited individuals and whisked off to the New Amsterdam Hospital, where she received immediate medical attention.
She was released shortly after and left for her home at Number Two Village, Corentyne, where she is resting comfortably. Traffic ranks are investigating the incident.
Dr Mayda, a Cuban national, has been working at the National Psychiatric Hospital at Fort Canje for a number of years.
