Father of six dies a month after horrific EBD accident


A security guard and a father of six, Rawle Glasgow died on September 1, close to a month after he was involved in an early morning accident at New Hope on the East Bank of Demerara.

The 54-year-old lived at Dr Charles Housing Scheme, Coverden East Bank Demerara with his reputed wife.

Glasgow along with other passengers were on their way to Georgetown in a route 42 minibus on August 2 when a grey pick-up that was heading in the opposite direction ended up in the path of the minibus which resulted in a head-on collision.

Eyewitnesses had claimed that the driver of the pick-up reeked of alcohol and was reportedly speeding at the time of the accident.

Glasgow was hospitalized in an unconscious state at the Georgetown Public Hospital until his death on Sunday. A post mortem examination conducted on Wednesday showed that Glasgow died as a result of multiple injuries.

The man’s daughter, who did not want to have her name published, told the News Room Friday that the family is seeking justice.

The daughter alleged that the family was treated unfairly during the time her father was hospitalized at GPHC.

She explained that her father’s doctors were allegedly not willing to give them any information as it relates to his condition and requests for a meeting with the doctors were never granted.

Glasgow is the second person to die in the accident; the first was the minibus driver 59-year-old Oswald Roberts who died hours after the accident at the Diamond Diagnostic Centre.

The Traffic Chief, Linden Isles, when contacted Friday, could not immediately say whether anyone was charged relating to the accident. He committed to providing the information later today.
