A 29-year-old man was killed when the vehicle in which he was travelling was struck by another car. The fatal collision occurred just after 01:00 hrs yesterday morning at the junction of David and Lamaha Streets, in Kitty.
The victim, Akeem Moffett called T.O. of West Ruimveldt, was on his way home when tragedy struck.
Moffett was one of three passengers in a car driven by Orwin McQuely.
Mc Quely recounted that he was driving north along Lamaha Street and was attempting to cross over David Street when another driver, who was travelling east on the thoroughfare slammed into him.
Moffett who was the most seriously injured was reportedly at the scene for approximately 30 minutes before being transported to the Georgetown Hospital via ambulance. He succumbed shortly after.
Police were summoned to the scene and the other occupants of the car were taken to the Kitty Station to assist with investigations.
The other two other passengers, Rayon Spencer and Quacy Jamad, did not suffer any significant injury. The driver of the other car, who was with his wife, received no injuries.
There was glass scattered all over the road and a lamp post was split in two as a result of the accident. Both drivers are reportedly in police custody assisting with investigations.
Moffett’s mother Jean Chisholm was inconsolable when she received the news of her son’s demise.
When Kaieteur News visited the man’s home, his relatives were trying to come to grips with the tragic and sudden loss. His nine-year-old daughter described her father as being very loving and helpful. Akeem Moffett will be buried today.
