The Guyana Police Force (GPF) is investigating a serious accident involving a minibus and a pedestrian which took place in West Coast Berbice (WCB) on Monday landing the pedestrian in the Intensive care unit (ICU).

According to reports received, on Monday at about 18:20 hours the minibus, driven by a 34-year-old Foulis, Enmore resident, was proceeding west on the southern lane of the Chester Public Road, WCB.

At that time, it is alleged by the driver that the pedestrian, a 55-year-old labourer of Chester Village, WCB named Maxwell Mona, suddenly ran from the southern side to the northern side into the vehicle’s path.

The driver stated that he applied brakes to avoid a collision but the left side front portion of the vehicle nonetheless hit the pedestrian. As a result, the pedestrian fell onto the roadway where he received injuries about his body.
