Three days after he was involved in an accident on the western approach to the Demerara Harbour Bridge,
Assistant Commissioner of Police, Balram Persaud is said to be out of danger.
This is according to one of his colleagues, who visited the injured Persaud at the Balwant Singh Hospital recently.
Kaieteur News understands that as of yesterday, the Assistant Commissioner was communicating with his friends, colleagues and family members.
At the time of the accident, Persaud was heading to the city along the West Bank Demerara road close to Dairy, West Bank Demerara (WCD) when he reportedly lost control of his vehicle and slammed into a utility pole.
This occurred some time after 23:00 hrs last Friday.
There are reports that the Assistant Commissioner was heading to Criminal Investigation Department’s (CID) social at the Gravity Night Club when the accident occurred.
Yesterday, Traffic Chief, Dion Moore, said that ranks received information of an accident Friday night. He explained that when traffic ranks responded, it was revealed that a motorcar, belonging to the Guyana Police Force had overturned after hitting a utility pole.
He added that it was only when the police turned up at the hospital that the victim was identified as Balram Persaud.
Traffic ranks are awaiting a statement from Persaud.
While there are reports that the Assistant Commissioner might have been under the influence of alcohol when he lost control of the vehicle, this could not be confirmed since he was rushed to the hospital and a breathalyzer test was not done.
