The driver of the car which was involved in Sunday’s fatal accident at Lima, Essequibo Coast, is now battling for his life in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Suddie Hospital.
Junior Ramroop of Charity is said to be hooked up to a life support machine. He sustained severe injuries to his face, a broken left leg and other injuries about the body. Ramroop is the only accident victim remaining at the Suddie Hospital. According to hospital sources his condition is too critical and he has not yet been stabilised, thus he cannot be transferred to the city.
Meanwhile at the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPHC) yesterday, five children were admitted to the hospital’s Pediatric ward, while three adults were transferred to the Male and Female Wards.
The children are Alex Gildarie, the three siblings, Geeta Persaud, Narindra Persaud and Satesh Rajkumarie, along with another child.
Alan Gildarie, a Port Kaituma resident, yesterday told Kaieteur News that he was in the bus with his wife, Claire Daniels and their two-year-old son, Alex, when the accident occurred.
“We were going to the hospital (Suddie) to see my father so we catch the bus which was empty. The driver drive through another street to collect more passengers and when it go out back on the main road with a full load, the car swerve into our path,” the elder Gildarie said.
Gildarie, who suffered two broken legs, said that people had to assist him to get out of the bus after the accident.
His wife is in a stable condition in the hospital. Their two-year-old son also suffered two broken legs along with abrasions to his skin.
The driver of the minibus, Vincent Persaud, was at that time still in the theatre.
On Sunday last, one woman was killed and several others were injured after a bus and a car collided at Lima, Essequibo Coast, at around 12:00 hrs.
The dead woman, Padawattie Rajkumarie was in the bus with her three children and her husband, Krishna Persaud, when the accident occurred.
Her three children are now patients at GPHC. Kaieteur News was unable to visit the children but a source confirmed that they are “stable.”
