Victim recalls accident involving former Top Cop
Fawaaz Kaleem, one of the occupants of the car, which was involved in the collision with former Police Commissioner Henry Greene, had a vague recollection of what happened before the smash up.
Kaleem, though in a great deal of pain, told Kaieteur News that he recalled seeing Greene’s vehicle coming at a fast rate of speed and as his father swerved the car desperately trying to avoid the tragedy, the vehicle slammed into their car.
Kaieteur News understands that Rahim Kaleem, the driver of the vehicle, and most of the others have been seriously injured. Zairoon Hussein remains unconsciousness.
Relatives say that the woman is showing no sign of improvement. Hussein reportedly sustained severe head injuries as a result of the accident.
One relative told this newspaper that Hussein has undergone a number of tests, including a CT scan and they are awaiting the results to determine the severity of the injuries she sustained.
Tragedy struck as three vehicles collided on the West Coast Demerara Public Road on Friday. The collision claimed the lives of former Police Commissioner Henry Greene and 10-year-old Shaffiya Jamaluddin.
Greene was driving a white Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) east along the West Coast Public road when he collided head on with the car which had six people and was traveling in the opposite direction.
Greene’s vehicle then slammed into the Bakewell truck which lost control and in turn crushed the car. Both Greene and Jamaluddin succumbed to their injuries before they could have received medical attention.
People immediately rushed to the assistance of the injured persons after the accident. They were initially taken to the West Demerara Regional Hospital and later transferred to the Georgetown Public Hospital.
At present, Rahim Kaleem, Reaz Kaleem, Zairoon Hussein and Fawaaz Kaleem are all patients of the Georgetown Public Hospital.
