On Friday, last, another accident took place, this time at Bagotstown Village, East Bank Demerara. It was around 09:00 hours at the Bagotstown Public Road (E.B.D) when a man who appeared to be under the influence of alcohol, “ran across the road” and into the path of a motorcar.
According to eyewitnesses, the driver of motorcar PJJ 1990 was heading south along the eastern carriageway of Bagotstown Public Road, EBD, when a gentleman ran east out of Water Street, Bagotstown and into the path of the motorcar.
Public-spirited individuals picked up the “drunken man” and took him to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) where he was admitted. He was identified by persons at the scene as “Frederick Nero”, 50, who resides at Water Street, Bagotstown.
Kaieteur News was told that the police patrol arrived shortly after the accident and took the driver of PJJ 1990 and his vehicle to the Providence Police Station, where his vehicle was lodged. The man is currently assisting with the investigation.
Yesterday, at the GPHC Nero had lacerations about his body and suffered neck injuries and a broken left leg.
Nero stated that he was by his cousin’s residence “having some beers” and some of his family wanted to go home, since it was a holiday, transportation would be “rough” and he accompanied them to the public road.
All he remembers after that is waking up in a hospital bed. Some villagers of Bagotstown state that Nero has a habit of running in front of moving vehicles on the said public road, whenever he consumes alcohol and becomes “drunk” and that Friday evening’s incident was “nothing new” to them.
