Macessia Henry, 41 of lot 18 Vigilance North, East Coast Demerara took his last breath on Sunday evening following a two-vehicle collision along the Schoonard Access Road, West Bank Demerara.
The accident has left Clarence Beaton, 39, of Brusche Dam, Buxton, East Coast Demerara in a critical condition. Jermaine Gray of Patentia, West Bank Demerara, who was also injured in the accident, is said to be in stable condition.

Several Guinness bottles and food boxes were seen in the car which indicated that the driver might have been driving under the influence.
