Seon Caesar, 35, of Stevedore Housing Scheme succumbed yesterday at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) to various injuries he received after crashing the minibus he was driving along Norton Street last Saturday.
The father of two was pronounced dead hours after he had a CT scan and was transferred to the operating theater, where he was said to be hanging onto his life.
Several passengers were also treated for other injuries they sustained in the accident.
According to an eyewitness, the minibus was travelling at a fast rate, heading east on Norton Street, when the driver attempted to overtake a car. The driver of the bus lost control when it swerved out of the path of an oncoming car and ripped up bridges that spanned the drain before coming to rest on its side.
“All I hear was a hard screech and the impact. People pitch out the window and landed far away from the bus….One was in the trench. Some people really get injured,” an eyewitness recalled.
The eyewitness explained that public-spirited citizens assisted with placing the bus on its wheels to free the driver who was covered in blood.
Among the injured were Tekita Cinnamon, 20, of Ruimveldt; Julie Corevea, 21, of Diamond, East Bank Demerara; Delon Mentore, 18, of Sideline Dam, Beterverwagting, East Coast Demerara; Shana Duncan,31, of Alberttown; Khashan Yhap, 13, of Princes Street, Lodge; Rayneim Guage, 17, of Princes Street, Lodge; Ray Peresta,27, of Tuschen, West Coast Demerara; and Eumal Granger,15 of Mandela Avenue.
