A two-vehicle collision at the corner of Sheriff and Enachu Streets, Campbellville, yesterday morning between two vehicles left four persons including a toddler, nursing injuries.
When Kaieteur News arrived on the scene the injured were being whisked away by the ambulance to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation.
Eyewitness Mark Garraway, said that it was just around 6:00 hours as he was hanging out his clothes he heard a loud noise. As he went to the gate he saw persons running towards the water delivery van and a Toyota Raum that had collided head on.
When he got to the scene a woman, identified as Natasha Persaud, who was in the Canter truck was screaming and crying as she clutched her two year old son, Aman Pertab. Her husband and driver of the Canter Ronaldo Pertab was pinned as a result of the impact. Fire Fighters had to be summoned to the scene to assist in getting the injured man out of the Motovan.
According to reports, the Canter truck, GTT 1300 driven by Pertab of 29 Howes and Ketley Streets, Charlestown, was proceeding north along Sheriff Street while the Toyota Raum bearing number plate PMM 8646 was proceeding in the opposite direction.
It is reported that the driver of the Raum who has since been released on cash bail, fell asleep at the wheel and may have veered into the path of the Canter resulting in the collision.
He sustained minor injuries, while it appears as though Pertab sustained a broken leg. The toddler sustained head injuries.
Natasha Pertab received cuts and bruises to the hands and feet.
