Two dead in East Bank crash

Two men died around 7 pm this evening and several persons were injured, one of them critically, following a three-vehicle smash up on the Grove, East Bank Demerara (EBD) highway.

Dead are Dellon Barthley, 30 of 206 Grove Housing Scheme, and Kurt Bascomb, 23, of 426 Grove Housing Scheme, EBD. They were travelling South along the highway in a car driven by Marvin Small. Small was rushed to the Diamond Hospital Complex before being taken to the Georgetown Hospital for treatment.

Eyewitnesses say that Small lost control of his vehicle and smashed another Raum which was travelling north, and which was carrying Zania Azeem, Fizal Azeem, Hamwattie Majeed, and Fiad Azeem, all of whom suffered injuries.

A motorbike was also involved in the accident and its rider also sustained injuries.
