Victor Adityaram, 20, who was killed in an accident on the Vreed-en-Hoop public road in the wee hours of Sunday morning, was found to have died as a result of a fractured spine and neck.
While the driver of motorcar PTT 6297 remains in a critical condition at the Balwant Singh Hospital, the third passenger is at the West Demerara Regional Hospital in a stable condition.
Individuals who were in close proximity to the accident, recalled hearing a loud impact around 01:30 hrs yesterday.
Upon rushing to the scene, they saw a car that had veered off of the road and had smashed through the fence of the Hand-In-Hand Insurance Company office.
One of the first responders told this publication that all the occupants were unconscious. Public-spirited citizens helped take them from the car.
Adityaram was eventually pronounced dead at the West Demerara Regional Hospital, while Bishram Ramkishore, the driver, was transferred from West Demerara Regional Hospital to the Balwant Singh Hospital after family members were told that he needed special medical attention.
Kevin Henry, the third occupant of the car was admitted to the West Demerara Hospital in a stable condition, since his injuries were restricted to fractured limbs.
The police in a statement said, “Whilst in the vicinity of the Hand-In-Hand Insurance Company, a pedestrian was allegedly seen crossing the road from south to north into the vehicle’s path.
“The driver reportedly swerved further north to avoid a collision, careened and in the process collided with a metal signboard and crashed into a concrete fence before his car came to a halt.”
Some of the persons who helped the men out of the car, and even administered CPR to them, felt more could have been done for the men if the emergency services had responded faster.
Family friends of Ramkishore claim when they visited the West Demerara Regional Hospital, doctors told them Ramkishore only had hours to live, which prompted them to take him to the Balwant Singh Hospital.
A post mortem was conducted on the body of Victor Adityaram yesterday at the Ezekiel Funeral Home by Dr. Nehaul Singh. It revealed that the cause of death to be “fractured spine”.
The body has since been handed over to the family, while the police continue their investigations.
