The Essequibo Coast has recorded its third road fatality in exactly three days, as a result of the death of a three-year-old Charity Housing Scheme toddler, who was crushed by a truck in front of his gate yesterday morning when he attempted to cross the street.
Dead is Josiah Persaud.
His father Micheal Persaud explained that he was talking to his wife when his friend who operates a truck pulled up in front of his yard.
He said that at the time his three year old son Josiah had gone over to the neighbour’s yard to pick up his ball.
According to Persaud, the little boy attempted to run across the street to his house and was struck and killed.
Persaud said the truck driver was apparently looking over to his (Persaud) house and did not see when little Josiah ran across the street.
A distraught Persaud said his son was struck in his head from the front of the truck and died in his arm. Little Josiah was subsequently taken to the Oscar Joseph Hospital where his death was confirmed by a doctor.
Best later lodged a report with detectives at the Charity Outpost. He remains in the lock ups at the station.
Friday last, 72-year-old, overseas based Guyanese Muntaz Baksh and his 44-year-old son Ramfat Baksh both of Land Of Plenty on the Essequibo Coast were struck and killed by a vehicle as they were walking from Anna Regina to their residence.
Both men sustained severe head injuries and died before receiving medical attention.
