Dead: Tiffany Forde

A 19-year-old woman of Coomacka Mines, Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) is the country’s latest road fatality. Tiffany Forde died at the Linden Hospital Complex shortly after she was involved in an accident during the wee hours of Saturday. 

Police Headquarters reported that the accident occurred at around 02:30hrs on the Coomacka Mines Road and involved motor car PXX 7789 owned and driven by Jermaine Lewis, a 28-year-old licensed driver of Coomacka Mines.  

Forde was an occupant in the vehicle along with 22-year-old Joel Rawlins—both of  Coomacka Mines. The car was proceeding north along the eastern side of Coomacka Mines Access Road at a fast rate of speed, when the driver lost control of the vehicle, resulting in it flipping several times before coming on the northern side of the road.  

As a result, Forde who was seated in the left front seat received injuries about her body. She was picked up by an Ambulance in an unconscious condition and rushed to the Linden Hospital Complex where she was pronounced dead on arrival.  

Her body is presently at the hospital’s mortuary awaiting a post mortem examination. The driver of the car and the other occupant who was seated in the back seat, were taken to the Mackenzie Police Station.  

They are presently assisting with the investigation. Breathalyzer tests conducted on Lewis recorded readings of .29 and .31 micrograms, respectively.
