The female who was struck down on the East Bank Demerara (EBD) Public Road in the vicinity of Houston last Thursday, has been identified as 18-year-old Lisa Khan.
Khan, of Kaneville, East Bank Demerara, was walking along the public road at around 20:00hrs when a heavily tinted vehicle struck her down.
She was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) where she was pronounced dead.
Khan was only identified two days ago when her relatives visited the GPHC’s mortuary after they failed to locate her.
Nicketa Khan, the dead teen’s sister, said that her sibling lived with their mother in Kaneville. At times, she stayed with another sister in Rahaman’s Park, Ruimveldt.
Khan said that on the day of the accident, her smaller sibling was staying in Rahaman’s Park. According to information received, the teen worked half day and went to her sister’s residence where she changed her clothing and left to go to her mother’s home.
On her way to Kaneville, she was killed.
“She didn’t have a phone so my mother thought she was at my sister’s home and my sister thought that she was at mom’s home, so we had no idea that she was killed in an accident,” the older Khan explained.
She added that it was when her sister was leaving her home; a security guard stopped her and asked about the teen’s whereabouts.
“The security guard told my sister that he last saw Lisa wearing a pink tights and the person who get hit down was wearing a pink tights too,” the older Khan said.
She further explained that her relatives went to the mortuary and made a positive identification.
The driver who struck Khan was charged yesterday.
