West Coast Berbice man succumbs after accident

A motorcycle and goods van collision claimed the life of a West Coast Berbice man yesterday.

Dead is Suraj Chandradai, 35, of Lot 815 School Street, Bath Settlement, West Coast Berbice.

A police source told Stabroek News that the driver of the motor van told the police that he was heading east, when he saw the motorcyclist roll out north of a street and collide with the van. That source added that Chandradai died while being attended to by doctors at the Fort Wellington Hospital.

Relatives were in a state of shock when contacted. Chandra Singh, the dead man’s sister told Stabroek News that she had no knowledge of how the accident occurred. However she did say that all the family knows was that Chandradai was riding his motorcycle in the vicinity of Pit Street, a few blocks from his home, when he collided with a van that had been transporting goods.

The driver of the van is said to be in police custody, assisting with investigations.
