A 66-year-old man was killed today after he allegedly walked into the path of a motorcar on the Agricola Public Road, East Bank Demerara (EBD).
Dead is Imtiaz Isahack of Eccles, EBD. The accident occurred at about 08:10h and involved motorcar PYY 1162 driven by a 50-year-old man from Yarrowkabra, Soesdyke-Linden Highway.
The motorcar driver told investigators he was proceeding along the Agricola Public Road when the 66-year-old pedestrian “walked into his path” without looking. As a result, he collided with the man, who was flung into the air before landing on the road’s surface.
