This fuel tanker was run off the Friendship, East Bank Demerara Public Road yesterday. The driver of the tanker and a sand truck both lost control of their vehicles when the unidentified driver of a grey Rav 4 overtook one of them just before diverting. Nezamodeen Nazir, driver of sand truck, explained that he was heading to the city when the fuel tanker was forced partially in his lane by driver of the Rav 4. “The Rav 4 overtake him and turn into the street right in front him and like he mash brakes to avoid hitting him but ain’t got no kind of brakes and so his truck end up crossway coming to me,” Nazir explained. The man said he barely managed to pull to safety in the corner of the opposite side of the road while the tanker plunged head-on into the trench. “He barely bruise me one side,” Nazir said. Nazir added that the police took statements but did not attempt to find the Rav 4 which turned into a cross street.
