Motorcyclist dies 26 days after being hit by RDC vehicle
A motorcyclist, who was struck down and dragged by a speeding funeral home vehicle along the Devonshire Castle Public Road, Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam), on October 12, 2020, has succumbed to his injuries while receiving medical attention at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC).
Dead is 56-year-old Tulsie Maniram of Lot 290 Hampton Court, Essequibo Coast, Region Two. He took his last breath on Saturday morning at about 05:00h without regaining consciousness since the accident.
Maniram, also known as “Bully,” was struck from his motorcycle by the van, which is owned by the Regional Democratic Council (RDC).
Reports are that on October 12, Maniram was proceeding south along the eastern side of Devonshire Castle Public Road on motorcycle CJ 6341, while the van, GNN 5061, was proceeding in the same direction.
The driver of the van claimed that he lost control of the vehicle while negotiating a turn and collided with the rear of the motorcycle.
As a result, Maniram fell onto the roadway and ended up under the hearse and was dragged for some distance. The hearse then toppled and came to a halt in a trench located on the eastern side of the road.
Maniram was removed from under the vehicle in an unconscious state and rushed to the Suddie Public Hospital but was transferred to the GPHC for further medical attention. (G1)
