Enquiries disclosed from the driver of HC 5547 that he was proceeding north along the western carriageway of the road en-route to Springlands with five (5) Haitian Nationals, all of whom arrived legally yesterday; when suddenly a donkey ran across from west to east into his path, which caused him to veer east and in that process, the vehicle toppled several times.

1) Dia Doxine – 19
2) Dossier Farantazcia – 15

The driver, 34, a member of the Guyana Fire Service of # 53 Village, Corentyne, has been taken into custody and is assisting with the investigation. He was given a breathalyser test, and no blood alcohol was detected.
