1 dead, 6 injured as car topples on Linden Soesdyke highway


A 34-year-old woman is now dead following an accident which led to the motor vehicle she was traveling in “turning turtle”, on the Linden Soesdyke highway on Sunday evening.

Dead is Cindy Moore of Lot 141 D’Anrade Street, Newtown, Georgetown.

Based on information received, the now dead woman was in the company of five other relatives, all of the same address, travelling in motorcar PTT 5964 from Linden to Georgetown along the western side of the roadway, when its rear right wheel suffered a blow-out in the vicinity of the Loo Creek Public Road, Linden-Soesdyke Highway, at approximately 18:30h.

This reportedly resulted in the vehicle, which was driven by 29-year-old Carlton Ferrel at fast rate, toppling several times before ending up in nearby bushes.

Moore was rushed to the Linden Hospital Complex (LHC) in a critical condition, and succumbed to her injuries on Monday morning.

The other occupants of the car, including 58-year-old Loretta Philadelphia, six-year-old Michael Benjamin, 14-year-old Dequan Gibson, 25-year-old Denzel Hyman and 15-year-old Pierre Browne all suffered minor injuries and were also admitted to the medical institution and later discharged.

Police investigations into the accident are on-going.
