One dead and several others injured in two separate accidents

one dead+accidentIt was not good news for relatives of injured man Shawn Bourne who perished from his injuries just around noon today.

The father of three from Dazil Housing Scheme on the East Coast of Demerara was in the front seat of the route 45 mini-bus which collided with another mini-bus at Agricola last night.

He was one of 17 persons who were in the route 45 mini-bus heading to the city from the creek.

Today his brother Winston told the media that he got a phone call that his brother, sister, sister-in-law and two nieces were involved in an accident, but his brother was the most critical. He said doctors told them that the man suffered spinal injuries.

This was the scene last night at the GPHC as the injured were rushed to the hospital to receive medical attention. Among them were two children with severe head injuries. One of the children was listed as critical. Both were sent to a private hospital for a CT scan.

Reports reaching Capitol News indicate that the Route 45 minibus, BRR 1955, was returning from a creek on the Linden-Soesdyke Highway when the vehicle clipped the back of the Route 32 bus, before slamming into the Alpha Hotel fence at Agricola. There are reports that the mini-bus toppled several times before landing.

The Route 45 bus was carrying 17 persons and the Route 32 bus had 12 passengers on board.

Brown is of the view that speeding may have been the cause, while other relatives were in pain as they expressed their grief.

And National Basketball player Royston Silas was up to press time still receiving medial attention after he was involved in an accident at Mahaicony last night.

Silas and a friend were heading to Georgetown when his car slammed into another car coming in the opposite direction around a turn. That vehicle was reportedly transporting several members of a Berbice family.
