Clothes vendor killed in road accident
An Eyewitness told this newscast that the clothes vendor was riding his motorcycle when a speeding car reportedly jumped the traffic light and slammed into another car which crashed into Mangal and sent him flying into the utility pole.
Public spirited citizens came to the man’s aid, placed him in a mini-bus and took him to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
The police later detained both drivers of the two cars involved in the accident, as the probe continues into the matter.
Mangal’s brothers who were at the hospital told reporters that his late brother was a careful rider and a lover of birds.
He was carrying his bird and it also died in the accident.
