[www.inewsguyana.com] – Up to late last evening (Friday, August 28), the doctors at the Diamond Hospital were making arrangements to have an injured police constable transferred to the Georgetown Public Hospital for advanced medical attention.
This is after the police rank, who was driving a service car, crashed into a pile of sand along the roadway at Timehri, East Bank Demerara (EBD) causing the vehicle to topple several times.
iNews understands that the police rank was not wearing his seat-belt at the time of the accident and received several lacerations to the head and other parts of the body as the airbag in the vehicle activated upon impact.
He was later identified as Constable Griffith, who is stationed at the Madewini Police Outpost. It is unclear what duties the rank was heading to or returning from at the time of the accident.
Residents flocked to the scene and assisted in getting the injured rank out of the badly damaged police car.
