Forty-year-old Keith Paul, called “Link up”, became the country’s latest road fatality when he was hurled from the speeding car that was transporting him back to his worksite in Region Eight (Potaro/Siparuta) early yesterday morning.
Paul, of Number One Road, Corentyne, Berbice, was among other passengers travelling in the car PNN 8226 around 06:45 hours when the driver, Michael Smith, lost control near the Madhia Airstrip.
The car turned turtle several times, hurling Paul on to the roadway where he landed and sustained severe injuries.
He died almost instantly. Passersby stared in horror at his body which lay on the roadway, a few feet from the mangled car, for almost an hour before it was taken away.
Kaieteur News understands that two other persons sustained injuries as a result of the accident.
Their names were given as Shawn Simon, 40, of 111 Miles, Mahdia and Michael Prince, 50, of Belmont, Mahaica, East Coast Demerara.
News of his death sent his relatives into a state of shock, since he had only left his home last Saturday to return to the interior.
His sister, Cabina Paul, told this newspaper that around 07:30 hours yesterday, the family received a telephone message from a friend informing them of the tragedy.
“We didn’t believe the news at first. Is till the police call around 9:30, then we know it was true,” Cabina Paul told this newspaper.
The dead man has been working in the interior for the past 20 years.
He was not married and had no children.
Was Jagdeo honest when he made those promises?
