A resident of Linden was killed yesterday following a motor vehicular accident at Bamia, Soesdyke/Linden Highway when he swerved from hitting a child but his vehicle ended up toppling several times.
Dead is Rawle Adams, 45, also known as ‘Banks’, a security guard at Bosai Minerals Group Guyana Incorporated (BMGGI) and of Lot 33 Constabulary Compound, Mackenzie.
Adams’ step-son Hoshaiah, 15, and his son Nehemiah, 5, were also injured in the accident. They are being treated at the Linden Hospital Complex (LHC).
Reports are that at about 14:15hrs yesterday (Monday), Adams was driving in a southerly direction with his two sons and he lost control of the car PSS9432 when he swerved from hitting a child, causing the car to topple several times before coming to a halt.
According to a female relative of the deceased, Adams was driving a friend’s car at the time. Another close relative indicated that Adams along with the two children had travelled to Silverhill along the Linden Highway earlier in the day to attend to his stepson’s “school project”. It was while returning home that tragedy struck.
Adams was an active cricketer and footballer in Linden.
