Updated: May 27, 2022

The family members of 62-year-old Randy Lee, who died on Monday after the vehicle he was travelling turned turtle along the Mabura Trail, Region 10, are contending that he “doesn’t speed.”

At the time of the accident, Bhisham Hiralall called “Ryan,” 30, of Number 7 Village West Coast Berbice, Bhoodnarine Ramgobin called “Mokesh,” 41, of 16th Street Foulis, East Coast Demerara (ECD), Conrad Gibson, 55, of Friendship East Bank Demerara (EBD) and Jailal called “Naresh,” 34 of Supply Mahaica, ECD were occupants of the vehicle.

Dead - Randy Lee

Lee, of Vergenoegen, East Bank Essequibo (EBE), was driving a motor pickup bearing registration number GNN 3286 and was proceeding along the Number 58 Mabura trail at an allegedly fast rate of speed when he suddenly pulled right to avoid a pothole.

He reportedly lost control of the motor pickup, which toppled several times before turning turtle on the eastern side of the road.

As such, he and the other occupants of the pick-up sustained injuries to their bodies. Lee was picked up in an unconscious state, along with the other occupants, by public-spirited citizens and transported to the Linden Hospital Complex (LHC), where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

His body was taken to a nearby funeral parlour to await a Post-Mortem Examination (PME). The other occupants of the pick-up were all treated for bruises and sent away. An investigation is underway.

Speaking with this publication, the dead man's son, Alberto Lee, said that the family went up to the Linden Hospital Complex after receiving the dreadful news but “have not gotten much information.”

The grieving son said that his father celebrated his 62nd birth anniversary on April 8, 2022, and recently returned to the interior, where he works as a mechanic.

He described his father as a “quiet” and “hard-working person” who leaves to mourn his wife and three children.
