1 injured after car slams into Police minibus

One man was injured on Sunday evening after the car in which he was travelling collided with a minibus owned by the Guyana Police Force at Brickdam and Winter Place, Georgetown. Yismar Morin, 30, of Zeelugt, East Bank Essequibo (EBE), received injures and was taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he was treated and admitted.
The accident involved a motor car bearing registration number PNN 752 driven by a 33-year-old man of Cornelia Ida New Housing Scheme, West Coast Demerara (WCD), and minibus PTT 9396, attached to the Special Constabulary Headquarters.
Based on information received, the minibus was driving west along Brickdam Public Road, while the motor car was proceeding south along Winter Place.
However, upon the approach of the intersection at Brickdam and Winter Place, the motor car failed to comply with the directions given by the stop sign and as such, collided with the minibus.
As a result of the collision, Morin, who was the lone occupant of the motor car, sustained injuries and was taken to the hospital. Nevertheless, a breathalyser test conducted on the driver of the car revealed that his alcohol level was above the legal limit.
The Police have since served a notice of intended prosecution to the driver of the motor car. An investigation is continuing.
