A pensioner was on Friday morning killed after he was struck by a motor van at the intersection of Hadfield and Smyth Streets, Georgetown. The dead man has been identified as 62-year-old Maurice Mosley of Lot 235 Lamaha Park, Georgetown.
Reports are the former meter technician at the Guyana Water Inc was heading to work at Top Branz Distributors when he met his demise. He was reportedly riding his motorcycle along Hadfield Street when the driver of the van failed to stop at the intersection and crashed into Mosley.
The van was reportedly driven by a Brazilian national. The man was administered a breathalyzer test which proved his blood had no trace of alcohol. The injured Mosley was picked up and rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
The driver of the van, who is also a pastor, is in Police custody assisting with investigations. At the dead man’s residence on Friday afternoon, his seemingly upset daughter told media operatives that the pastor who struck her father did not even offer words of comfort to the family.
She noted that they received news of the accident at about 06:00h and immediately rushed to the hospital. Guyana Times understands that after the accident occurred, an injured Mosley was left on the roadway for quite some time before he was taken to the hospital. The daughter noted that the family is still in a state of shock and disbelief.
Mosley leaves to mourn his five children. The Police are continuing their investigations.
