Two GT&T employees remain under observation in ICU after Mabura Road crash – 19th Jun 2013
The two GT&T employees who are hospitalized at a city Hospital remain under observation in the Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit even as the Company tries to ascertain what exactly happened. The men were part of a team travelling to Lethem to complete infrastructural works on behalf of the Company. Capitol News understands that the Driver of the Pickup lost control of the vehicle on the Mabura road somewhere in the vicinity of 57 miles. The vehicle then turned turtle several times. This happened on Tuesday some time after 9:30 in the morning.
26-year-old Trevon Morris of D Field Sophia lost his life in the crash and Jermaine Prince and Lawrence Harris are hospitalized. The other occupant of the vehicle escaped unhurt. He said he was in the rear and curled himself up and held on tightly to the seats which is why he did not get any serious injury. He was processed at the McKenzie Hospital and sent away.
Yesterday anxious relatives and friends gathered at the St. Joseph’s Mercy Hospital awaiting the arrival of the men who were air-dashed to the city. Some of the Company’s top brass were also on hand to ensure the men receive the best care and attention. GT&T in a statement expressed regret at the accident and extended condolences to the family of the deceased employee.
