Woman, 22, dies in Brickdam accident
Kizzre Cave, a 22-year-old woman who lived at Cane Street Meadow Bank, Georgetown, died while receiving treatment at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) after she was involved in a motorcycle accident on Saturday.
According to a police report, Cave was travelling with an unidentified male on a motorcycle bearing the number plate #CK 9077 at around 21:15 hrs, proceeding north along the western side of Brummel Place, Brickdam, Georgetown.
At that time, a motorcar (#PWW 2903), driven by 30-year-old Tameshwar Persaud of First Street Herstelling, East Bank Demerara, was proceeding east along the northern side of the road.
It was reported that as both vehicles approached the intersection at Brummel Place, the drivers failed to stop and instead continued to proceed in their respective directions. The traffic light at this intersection was not working at the time.
As such, the front of the car collided with the left side of the motorcycle and as a result, Cave and the unidentified motorcyclist fell onto the road where they both sustained injuries. The motorcyclist, however, got up and ran away.
Cave, on the other hand, was picked up in an unconscious state by an ambulance and taken to the GPHC. At the hospital, she was seen and examined by a doctor on duty and admitted a patient, suffering from broken legs, a fractured left arm and concussion to the head.
At around 05:30 hrs on Sunday, however, the young woman succumbed to her injuries.
Meanwhile, a notice of intended prosecution was served to Persaud. He tested negative for alcohol in his system.
