Nadia Mohamed, who collided with a motorcycle on Wednesday on Mandela Avenue, Georgetown, leaving a mother of five dead and another critical in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at the Georgetown Public Hospital, has been released on station bail.

Director of the Guyana Police Force’s (GPF) Corporate Communications Unit (CCU) Mark Ramotar confirmed that the woman was granted $100,000 station bail.

Dead: Odessia Sam

It was reported that 42-year-old Odessia Sam of Middle Road, La Penitence, Georgetown, and Wendel Oudkerk of Lamaha Springs, Georgetown, were travelling on motorcycle CH 1099 at about 15:20h when they crashed into a Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) bearing registration 7007, being driven by Mohamed.

It is alleged that Oudkerk, the motorcycle driver, failed to stop and proceed onto the northern carriageway at an opening between the median at the junction of Mandela and Critchlow Avenue.

In doing so, he ended up in the path of the SUV, which resulted in a collision. Oudkerk and Sam were thrown onto the road’s surface, where they received injuries on their bodies.

Oudkerk was picked up in a semi-conscious state and transported to the Georgetown Public Hospital. On the other hand, Sam was placed in a police vehicle and transported to the same hospital, and she was pronounced dead on arrival.

Her body is at the Memorial Gardens Funeral Home awaiting a Post Mortem Examination (PME).
