Three persons lost their lives tragically this morning when the car they were travelling in crashed into a sand truck at Relief, East Bank Demerara around 11am.

A passer-by assisted in transporting the three persons to the Diamond Diagnostic Hospital where they were pronounced dead.
The driver of the truck, GNN 3019, is said to be in police custody.
