Home News Meadow Bank woman dies in 2-vehicle collision along Brickdam
Twenty-two-year-old Kizzre Cave of Cane Street Meadow Bank, Greater Georgetown, succumbed to her injuries while receiving treatment at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) on Sunday after she was involved in a motorcycle accident on Saturday evening.
Police said Cave was the rider of the motorcycle bearing registration number CK 9077 at the time of the accident. The identity of the pillion rider was not released to the media.
However, based on reports received, on the day in question at about 21:15h, a motor car that was driven by Tameshwar Persaud, 30, of First Street Herstelling, East Bank Demerara (EBD), with registration number PWW 2903, was proceeding along Brickdam while the motorcycle was proceeding north along the western side of Brummel Place.
As both vehicles approached the intersection of Brickdam Public Road and Brummel Place, where there was a traffic light that is not functioning, the vehicles failed to stop and continued proceeding in their respective directions.
As such, the front of the motor car collided with the left side portion of the motorcycle. This resulted in Cave and the pillion rider falling onto the road’s surface where they both sustained injuries about their bodies.
Cave was reportedly picked up in an unconscious state by an ambulance and taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where she was treated and admitted a patient suffering from broken legs, a fractured left arm and concussion to the head. She later succumbed to her injuries at about 05:30h on Sunday.
Police said a notice of intended prosecution was served on the driver of the motor car. A breathalyser test was also conducted on him but there were no signs of alcohol in his system.
An investigation is underway.
