Several persons were injured on Saturday night after a motorcar and a minibus collided on the Vryheid’s Lust Public Road, East Coast Demerara (ECD).
Reports are that motorcar PLL 2388, which an Enmore resident drove, was proceeding south out of the Better Hope Northern Access Road when he drove onto the Vryheid’s Lust Public Road and into the path of minibus BTT 8484, which resulted in a collision.
The minibus, which was driven by 48-year-old Corwin Abrams of Helena #1 Mahaica, ECD, further collided with a traffic light pole located on the northern grass parapet.
As a result, several passengers in the minibus and the driver received injuries about their bodies and were rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where they were seen and examined by a doctor on duty, who treated them and sent them away.
20-year-old Xavier Jaramillo, of Helena, Mahaica, a passenger in the minibus, was admitted as a patient for a fractured left thigh.
Meanwhile, the motorcar driver, along with a 21-year-old occupant, was also taken to the hospital, where they were treated by a doctor and sent away. Investigations are continuing.
