Ranks of the Springlands Police Station have intercepted and apprehended the hit-and-run driver of the vehicle PNN 7736 involved in the accident which resulted in the death of Irshaad Mamood.

The driver identified as 31-year-old Jomeshwar Brijlall of Number 61 Village, Upper Corentyne, told investigators that he was on his way to the police station when they arrested him.

Narrating her version of the events leading up to the accident, Brijlall said he was turning the car into the gas station while another vehicle was passing, and as it passed he attempted to pull into the gas station when the collision occurred. The driver claimed that the vehicle which passed had prevented him from seeing what was behind.

Mamood, a welder of Lot 51 Number 7 Housing Scheme, Corentyne was out with his girlfriend, Rishma Ramdatt, at the Sukhpaul Service Station in Springlands, but reportedly rode out at the same time that motor car PNN 7736 attempted to turn into the gas station, thus the car and motorcycle collided.

Mamood was reportedly flung several feet away from where the collision occurred and suffered significant damages to his neck and head. He succumbed shortly after at the Skeldon Public Hospital.
Mamood’s girlfriend Ramdatt was reported in the media saying that she was right there and saw her boyfriend die on the road. According to Ramdatt the car drove across the road and into the path of the motorcyclist, making it impossible for him to avoid the accident.
Based on reports received, the accident occurred around 20:00hrs on Sunday night.
Mamood’s relatives are pleading for justice for the young man.
