Education Minister, Nicolette Henry accompanied by Chief Education Officer Marcel Hutson and other Senior Education officials of Region Four (Demerara Mahaica) visited the grieving relatives of Carlotta James who died in an accident involving a truck on Saturday morning.
James, of Buxton, at the time of her demise was the Headteacher of Dorcas Nursery School, Plaisance, East Coast Demerara.
In her engagement with the grieving family Minister Henry offered her condolences on behalf of the MoE and the Government of Guyana and pledged her Ministry’s support during this difficult period for the family.
James, called Abigail, of Lot 27, Middle Walk, Buxton, East Coast Demerara reportedly died after the car she was driving slammed into the back of a lorry along the Good Hope Public Road, ECD in the wee hours of Saturday.
The driver of motor lorry GPP 143, a 31-year-old resident of Mahaicony, ECD, reportedly told investigators that he had slowed down the vehicle and had indicated he was about to turn south across the Good Hope public road when the car being driven by the 45-year-old James ran into his rear.
Initially pinned in her vehicle, James was subsequently removed therefrom, placed in a Police pickup, and rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
