Cop remains bedridden after fatal Catherine crash

Police Constable Jarren Huntley, who was the driver behind the wheel of the car involved in the fatal crash at Catherine, Mahaicony, last Sunday, has been discharged from hospital and is bedridden, according to Traffic Chief Dion Moore.

Moore, in a telephone interview, explained that investigations are ongoing into the accident and the police would be taking a statement from Huntley.

Huntley, of El Dorado Village, West Coast Berbice, was allegedly speeding last Sunday when he struck three persons—a cyclist, Jaden Alleyne, and two pedestrians, Winston Small and Lawrence Semple. Both Small and Semple died.

The Guyana Police Force said on Monday that Huntley lost control of the vehicle after swerving to avoid a bad patch of road.

Small 52, a carpenter of Lot 2 Catherine Village, Mahaicony, was pronounced dead on arrival on Sunday at the Mahaicony Cottage Hospital, while Semple succumbed on Tuesday morning at the Georgetown Public Hospital.

Also injured in the accident were the three passengers in Huntley’s vehicle, Delroy Hutson, 35, Odari Reynolds, 23, and Fitzroy Goodridge, 23, all of El Dorado, West Coast Berbice. They were also taken to the Mahaicony Cottage Hospital for medical attention. Hutson and Reynolds were treated and sent away, while Goodridge was admitted for observation but was later discharged.
