Two dead in highway crash
Two men were killed almost instantly at around 22: 00 hrs yesterday after the car they were in slammed into a utility pole near Long Creek on the Soesdyke/ Linden Highway.
The victims have been identified as 33-year-old Safraz Ali of Sara Johanna, East Bank Demerara and Joe Mohammed of Dora, Soesdyke/Linden Highway.
Reports are that Ali, who is a taxi driver, went to Dora to pick up Mohammed and the men were heading to Georgetown when the driver apparently lost control of his vehicle.
One eyewitness told this publication that when they raced to the scene, Mohammed was already out of the car and Ali was climbing out of the car.
“Like the impact pelt the other man out the car but Ali climb out the car and as soon as he reach out he fall down and left right deh.”
Meanwhile, by the time other public spirited citizens reached to offer assistance both men appeared dead.
They were placed in the back of a pick-up and transported to the Diamond Diagnostic Centre where they were both pronounced dead on arrival.
