Minibus driver dies in Rupununi accident


An accident on the Bina Hill public road in North Rupununi on Sunday resulted in the death of 48-year-old Lennox George of Annai Village.

Police Headquarters reported that George was driving minibus (#BAB 4875) owned by Annai Central Village Council at around 03:45hrs with two passengers – 20-year-old Juliana Williams and her six-year-old son.

It is alleged that George was speeding west along the northern side of the road when he dropped into a pothole and lost control; as a result, the minibus collided with a nearby tree on the southern grass parapet.

The driver’s body was removed from the minibus and placed on the parapet while the two passengers were escorted to the Annai Health Centre where they were admitted for observation.

A doctor later arrived at the scene of the incident and pronounced the driver dead.

The body of the deceased is at the Lethem Regional Hospital Mortuary awaiting an autopsy.

    Lets look…… no names will be used to protect the guilty.

    1) Braindead minibus driver speeding with child and mother in bus
    2) Driver not wearing seatbelt
    3) Driver dead causing his family much trauma.

    So where was the speeding and not wearing seatbelt worth it? Where?
