He also stated that the post mortem of the two children, 10-month-old Marvin Miguel and 7-year-old Tina Miguel, has been postponed from being conducted today, to Monday “or sometime next week.”

In the wee hours of Tuesday morning last, the family of four who reside at Covent Garden on the East Bank of Demerara, were travelling to Parika, East Bank Essequibo, when the driver of the dark grey Premio, Mark Halley lost control of the vehicle on the Blankenburg Public road and collided with two vehicles –a Toyota Tundra and a mini-bus- that were parked on the roadway.

As a result of the accident, the two children died and their parents were hospitalised.
