Father of three dies in motorcycle accident
Sixty-year-old Clifton Sukhoo, a shopkeeper and father of three, was killed on the spot Tuesday after a motorcyclist crashed into him on the Cumberland, East Canje Berbice Public Road.
His brother, Mohabir Jattan told the News Room that Sukhoo was on his way home after taking his motorcycle to the workshop for minor repairs; the incident occurred at around 12:30h.
It is alleged that the rider of the CBR motorcycle crashed into Sukhoo, who attempted to turn into a street. The impact of the crash struck Sukhoo off his motorcycle; he was thrown into the air and landed about 30 feet away from the point of impact.
The other motorcyclist, who was identified as a teacher, is hospitalised at the New Amsterdam Hospital. The victim’s brother, Jattan, struggled to contain his emotions.
“Is my dead brother I pick up,” Jattan said through tears. Meanwhile, another brother, Mohabir Jattan, is calling for justice and wants the motorcyclist, who crashed into his brother, to face the full brunt of the law.
“I need justice for my brother; many times people kill people on the road and you don’t nothing come off of it.”
Sukhoo was described as a hardworking and loving individual, who cared dearly for his family. His wife passed away and he also lost a son to suicide recently. He leaves to mourn three children. An investigation into the accident is ongoing.
