Two students of the North Georgetown Primary School were treated for minor injures at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) yesterday after a minibus and an ambulance collided.
The accident occurred shortly after 15:00 hours at the junction of Lamaha and Albert Streets in Queenstown.
Reports are that the Route 45 minibus was heading south along Albert Street and the ambulance was heading west along Lamaha when the two vehicles came into contact. The driver of the minibus, Jagroop Persaud, said the traffic light was signalling for him to go, and he complied.
He said the next thing he knew was that there was a sudden impact to his vehicle and he subsequently saw an ambulance in the Lamaha Street canal.
The ambulance, which is attached to the New Amsterdam Hospital, was at the time transporting a patient, Jairam Budhoo, who had earlier in the day sustained a fractured leg in an accident. A nurse accompanying the patient, Denise Cadogan, as well as the driver of the ambulance, sustained minor injures.
Two students who happened to be standing in the vicinity at the time of the collision were treated for minor injures at the GPHC and sent away.
Was Jagdeo honest when he made those promises?
