Another person has succumbed following last Friday’s two-vehicle collision at Mahaicony, East Coast Demerara Public Road.
Elias Ross, 25, of Zeskendren, Mahaicony, East Coast Demerara died yesterday morning. Ross had sustained multiple injuries.
Twenty-three year-old Torick McLennon, also of Zeskendren, had died shortly after the car he was driving collided with a truck. Hollin Roberts, 22, and Calvin Mc Lennon, 21, of Farm, Mahaicony, were also in the car. Roberts was admitted to the Mahaicony Cottage Hospital while Calvin McLennon was treated and sent away.
Mc Lennon was allegedly driving at a fast rate when the collision occurred.
Eyewitnesses say that his passengers were flung onto the roadway while McLennon was pinned behind the steering wheel.
One resident said that there are usually several cows on the roads, and he had at first assumed that the truck had struck one. “When me rush out and go out, me see one of the fellow deh on the ground trembling up and the driver pin down inside there…He dead on the spot.”
This accident comes at a time when the Guyana National Road Safety Council prepares to launch National Road Safety Month 2014. The Council last Thursday disclosed that drunk driving and speeding were the main causes of road accidents in Guyana.
Police, in a report last month, noted an increase in road fatalities during the past nine months, with 100 road deaths from 92 accidents, as against 75 fatalities from 72 accidents for the same period in 2013.
