Police ranks in Regional Division 4’C’ are investigating a fatal incident which has claimed the life of 42-year-old Romeo Machado of Nooten Zuil, East Coast Demerara.
The incident occurred Friday about 00:10 hours on the Bee Hive Public Road, East Coast Demerara and involved minibus BYY 4603 which was driven by the now deceased man.
Initial enquiries disclosed that minibus BYY 4603, driven by the 42-year-old man, was proceeding east along the said road, allegedly at a fast rate of speed, when the driver drove into a pothole, and lost control of the minibus.
As a result, the bus crashed into a wooden post erected on the southern side of the road and it ended up in a nearby trench.
The driver received several injuries about his body as a result of the impact. He was taken out of the minibus by public-spirited persons in an unconscious state and taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
The body is presently at the Memorial Garden’s Funeral Home awaiting a post mortem examination.
