Five firemen rushed to hospital after truck crashes
Five firemen have been rushed to the West Demerara Regional Hospital after the truck they were travelling in crashed at De Kindren, West Coast Demerara.
Acting Fire Chief Jacqueline Green said that the matter is under investigation and she could not immediately comment.
The Guyana Police Force in a subsequent statement noted that the fire tender PRR 1635 responded to a fire at Parika, East Bank Essequibo earlier today and was returning to the Leonora Fire Station when it veered off the road and crashed into a Day Care Centre which is under construction.
“The vehicle is extensively damaged and its occupants admitted patients at the West Demerara Regional Hospital nursing injuries about their bodies and are said to be in stable condition,” the Police Force said.
They are: the driver, Section Leader Troy Gravesande, 45 and Firemen Adrian Benjamin, 24; Quinton Damon, 36; Errol Hyman, 42, and Bryant Bobb, 20.
