Police are investigating a fatal accident that occurred on Monday at about 08:10hrs on the Agricola Public Road, East Bank Demerara (ECD).

The accident claimed the life of 66-year-old pedestrian Imtiaz Isahack of Eccles, EBD.

The accident occurred in the vicinity of the Agricola Police Outpost and involved motorcar PYY 1162 driven by a 50-year-old man from Yarrowkabra, Soesdyke-Linden Highway.
