Five persons were injured in two separate accidents on Sunday and Monday.
Injured are Sirpaul Singh, Roy Garcia, Jasmin Dias, Romario Ossorio and Keshon David.
On Monday at about 00:45h Singh, Garcia, Dias and Ossorio were occupants of motor pick-up GAB 4784, when the vehicle crashed into a median and turned turtle on the East Bank Highway.
According to the Police, the motor pick-up was proceeding north along the western carriageway of Herstelling Public Road at a fast rate of speed and on the approach of the Mocha Access Road, the driver, Sirpaul of Croal Street, Georgetown, lost control of the vehicle and collided with a concrete median which separates the two carriageways, toppled several times and finally came to a halt on the Providence Public Road.
The driver was flung out of the vehicle on impact, while the occupants – Garcia, 34, of Da Silva Street Newtown, Kitty, Georgetown; Dias, 20, of Soesdyke-Linden Highway and Ossorio, 32, of Croal Steet, Georgetown – were also injured.
Police stated that the driver and Dias were taken the Diamond Diagnostic Centre in an unconscious condition, while the other two occupants were conscious. Garcia was seen and examined by a doctor on duty, treated and later sent away, while the others were referred to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation where they were further seen and examined by doctors on duty and admitted as patients.
Singh and Dias, Police said, are both suffering from head and chest injuries and their conditions are regarded as serious while Ossorio suffered a fractured right shoulder but is in a stable condition. An investigation has been launched.
Meanwhile, at about 13:00h on Sunday, 19-year-old Keshon David was injured in a hit-and-run in Charlestown, Georgetown.
The motorcyclist of William Street, Kitty, Georgetown, is now hospitalised with a fractured skull after he was involved in the accident at the intersection of Broad and Lyng Streets, Charlestown.
According to the Police report, the motorcyclist was proceeding north along Lyng Street at a fast rate of speed and allegedly failed to adhere to the stop sign at the Broad Street intersection when he ended up in the path of a blue Honda CRV, with registration plates PJJ 4170, which was proceeding east along the northern side of Broad Street. As a result, the front left side of the motor jeep collided with the left side rear of the motorcycle with registration plates CL 2314, causing the motorcyclist to lose control and fall on the roadway where he received injuries to his body.
The driver of the motor jeep drove away from the scene, Police said.
The motorcyclist was picked up in a semi-conscious condition and taken by ambulance to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation where he was admitted a patient. Investigations are ongoing.
