A 19-year-old female met her demise on Saturday after the car she was in turned turtle on the Coomacka Mines Access Road.
The dead woman has been identified as Tiffany Forde of Coomacka Mines in Region 10.
According to the Guyana Police Force’s (GPF) Corporate Communications Unit (CCU), the accident occurred at about 02:30h and involved motorcar PXX 7789, which Jermaine Lewis, 28, drove. 22-year-old Joel Rawlins, also of Coomacka Mines, was also an occupant in the car.
