A 29-year-old father of one, Corwin Anderson, of Lot 99 David Rose Street, Bagotville, West Bank Demerara (WBD) was killed on Sunday at about 05:45hrs following a collision with a car on the Nismes Public Road, West Bank Demerara.
Anderson was riding motorcycle CG 4337 in a northerly direction when motor car PJJ 6297, travelling in the opposite direction, allegedly collided with him and sent his body flying several feet away from the scene of the collision.
Bleeding profusely, he was picked up and rushed to the West Demerara Regional Hospital (WDRH) by public-spirited individuals, where he later succumbed to the injuries he had sustained.
According to Sharon Anderson, one of his aunts, having been informed that her nephew had been involved in an accident, she immediately rushed to the WDRH, where she found him bleeding profusely. She criticised the hospital for not being fully equipped to deal with her relative’s injuries.
This aunt detailed that it was at exactly 07:26hrs when her nephew took his last breath. She said the police arrived at the hospital shortly after, as the driver of the motor car was being treated for minor injuries. He was subsequently discharged into police custody to assist with investigations.
The late Corwin Anderson was described as the “street live wire” by relatives and friends, who sought to describe how jovial a person he had been. He leaves to mourn his reputed wife, seven siblings and other relatives and friends. (Ramona Luthi)
