A resident of the East Coast Demerara corridor is now battling for his life after he was run over by a vehicle along the Unity Old Road in Mahaica, ECD on Thursday evening.
The injured 31-year-old Emel Robinson of Mosquito Hall, Mahaica, ECD is suffering from a fractured skull.
Based on reports received, the accident involved motorcar PWW 2670, at the time being driven by a 40-year-old resident of Lancaster Village, Mahaica, ECD. The police have said that the car was proceeding along the roadway when the driver felt an impact and decided to bring the vehicle to a halt. As he exited, he observed the 31-year-old victim lying on the roadway with injuries to his face.
The injured man was picked up and taken to the Mahaicony Cottage Hospital, where it was determined that, due to the extent of his injuries, he would have to be transferred to the Georgetown Public Hospital. He is currently admitted in that institution in a critical condition.
A breathalyzer test conducted on the driver determined that he was under the influence of alcohol. He was thus arrested, and remains in custody pending further investigations.
