Bakewell driver dies six days after horrific accident with speeding Banks DIH truck
A driver attached to Bakewell Ltd died almost one week after he was involved in a horrific accident with a Banks DIH truck on the West Coast Berbice road.
Police Headquarters in a statement noted that 38-year-old Ravindra Arjune of Non-Pariel East Coast Demerara succumbed to his injuries at the Georgetown Public Hospital at around 07:00h on Friday.
The News Room reported that the speeding Banks DIH truck resulted in a three-vehicle smash-up on the Trafalgar Public Road on September 25.
Police Headquarters in a statement noted that the Banks DIH truck, which was being driven by a 32-year-old male, was proceeding east along the road at a fast rate of speed while a car was proceeding in the opposite direction in front of the Bakewell truck.
The driver of the Banks DIH truck told the Police that a truck suddenly stopped in front of him and so he applied brakes, pulled to the left and then to the right when he collided with the rear of the car.
This caused the truck to spin after which it crashed into the right side front of the Bakewell truck. As a result, the driver of the Bakewell truck was pinned inside the vehicle; he was extracted with the help of public-spirited persons and taken to Fort Wellington Public Hospital in a conscious condition and later transferred to Georgetown. The accident occurred at about 09:15h.
