Nigel Glen, 26, of One-Mile, Linden, who was involved in an accident on Camp Street on Saturday died while being treated at the Georgetown Public Hospital.
Reports are that the man died sometime after 20:00 hours on Saturday after sustaining injuries to his head as a result of the accident which occurred around 16:30 hrs.
Glen, a nurse at the GPHC, only relocated from Linden to Georgetown about one month ago.
Kaieteur News was told that the man was riding his motorcycle along Camp Street when he approached the traffic lights at the junction with North Road.
Having the green light, Glen proceeded when Kunti Dial, the driver of PLL 9996, a Vitz “jumped the red light” and slammed into his motorcycle.
Eyewitnesses stated that the driver of the car tried to drive away after hitting the motorcyclist.
A taxi-driver went to Glen’s rescue while another car driver blocked Dial from leaving the area.
Dial, however, told a different tale, claiming that Glen was the one at fault, since “he jumped the light” and “rode into her.”
She said that after the impact with their vehicles, she lost control of her Vitz and ran into the corner. She was then pulled out in a state of shock and unconsciousness by public-spirited persons.
It was reported that police ranks arrived at the scene 20 minutes later and took Dial and her passenger was taken to the GPHC for medical attention.
When this newspaper arrived at the hospital, Dial was awaiting her medical examination, while doctors and staff were treating Glen.
