A police patrol motor vehicle, PJJ 9093, collided with a minibus at the junction of Sandy Babb Street and Vlissengen Road, Kitty, yesterday, while transporting a dead man to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC).
Saroop Vijymal, the driver of the minibus, BMM 3108, said that he was travelling in a southerly direction on Vlissengen Road, when the police vehicle “jumped” the traffic lights and ran into his vehicle. He said that as a result of the collision, his vehicle hit motor vehicle, PMM 5855 which was behind him. Vijymal is contending that the police are negligent and did not alert other road users, by the use of their sirens.
According to a police source, 55-year-old Ramchand Seelochan of Lot, 403 Ganges Prashad Nagar, Georgetown, a taxi driver of motor vehicle HB 870, had died while travelling on Sheriff Street.
At the time he was at the wheel of his vehicle. His vehicle crashed into an electrical post at Campbell Avenue. The police said that the man was being taken to the hospital, when their vehicle crashed.
Malini Cheong, the dead man’s sister, told Kaieteur News that her brother had no previous serious illness.
