Young doctor killed in Essequibo motorcycle crash was speeding – Police
The Regional Democratic Council (RDC) of Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) expressed sadness at the death of Dr Haimant Haimraj who died following a motorcycle accident on the Essequibo Coast.
Region Two Chairman Devanand Ramdatt recalled how elated Haimraj’s mother, who is a teacher, was at his graduation last year.
At that graduation exercise, the doctor had expressed how thankful he was to his mother for providing him with the opportunity to study in the field of medicine.
Ramdatt said he is convinced that the short period of service given by the deceased doctor is adequate enough to leave qualities that others can emulate. He said the RDC extend condolences to the family.
Meanwhile, the Police have disclosed that the 26-year-old of Fairfield Village died after he lost control of his bike and crashed into a fence. According to investigations, speeding has been attributed as the cause of the accident which occurred at the Vilvoorden Public Road, on the Essequibo Coast.
The incident reportedly occurred at about 17:45hrs on Friday when the doctor was riding his motorcycle with licence plates CF 9645, south along the eastern side of the road at a fast rate. He reportedly attempted to manoeuvre a left turn when he lost control and crashed into a chain link fence on the western parapet of the road. He was immediately rushed to the Suddie Public Hospital where he underwent emergency surgery but died during the process.
According to a Guyana Times report, Haimraj recently returned from Cuba after his medical studies. He was stationed at the Suddie Public Hospital.
