A social event held for the delegation of the 20th Biennial Congress of the People’s National Congress Reform (PNC/R) at the Georgetown Club on Friday evening ended in chaos after at least five vehicles belonging to attendees- one of which is attached to the Ministry of Social Cohesion- became involved in a massive collision outside of the Camp Street, Georgetown venue.
While details are still sketchy, the Police “A” Division Commander, Marlon Chapman along with Traffic Chief, Ramesh Ashram both confirmed the incident.
However, while Chapman noted that he had no information regarding what transpired, Ashram disclosed that one State vehicle belonging to the Social Cohesion Ministry was involved.
The Traffic Chief further explained that the multiple-vehicle collision was deemed minor as only vehicles were damaged.
When INews spoke to him on Saturday afternoon, he said that he had only been briefed on the accident and had not received a full report as yet.
Meanwhile, while unconfirmed, information has surfaced that the accident occurred as a result of the PNC/R Congress attendees attempting to drive while inebriated.
Several persons were said to be injured.
It was also alleged that following the accident, Government officials quickly fled the scene to avoid possible encounters with the media.
Investigations are ongoing.
