A ten-year-old girl from the Taymouth Manor Primary school is now in a critical state, after she was struck down on the Affiance Public road, Essequibo Coast on last Tuesday.
The incident is believed to have occurred around 15:20 hrs on last Monday, in front of the child’s residence. Kaieteur News understands that the 10-year-old, who was identified as Bibi Saudia Baksh, was returning from the Al Madea Islamic Academy summer classes, at the time of the incident.
Reports indicate that Baksh exited the rear end of the Academy’s school bus, which was proceeding south along the Affiance Public Road and proceeded to cross.
She reportedly ran into the path of motorcar PRR 1393, which was driven by a woman.
The child’s mother, Shameena Baksh, who is still in shock and disbelief, said that she was in her home at the time of the incident. The woman said that she heard the heavy impact and upon looking outside, she noticed her daughter was lying motionless on the public road.
Shameena said that her daughter was assisted, and rushed to the Suddie Public Hospital by public-spirited individuals who were on scene. Eyewitnesses, who claim that speeding was a contributing factor to the accident, said that the young girl was thrown some 50tf from the point of impact.
The driver of the motor car is still in police custody, as the 10-year-old remains in an unconscious state at the Georgetown Public Hospital.
