-driver still unidentified

Mona London

The family of security guard Mona London remains hopeful that the driver who struck and killed her will be found and brought to justice.

London, 60, of Haslington, East Coast Demerara, who was employed with Massy Security, was struck down after she left the MovieTowne construction site when her shift ended on the evening of July 24th.

London left the construction site with a co-worker, Odessa Gravesande, and as she was attempting to cross to the northern carriageway of the Rupert Craig Highway, she was hit by a dark coloured SUV, which was travelling at a fast rate toward Georgetown.

She was dragged approximately 100 ft from the point of impact. The vehicle, which has not been identified, did not stop after the impact. London died at the scene.

The woman was described as a very quiet and pleasant person, who stayed out of trouble and was respected in her community.

London’s great niece, Monique English, told Stabroek News that she has gotten no word from the police as it relates to the progress in their investigation to find the driver responsible for her death.

English stated that the family is, however, hopeful that the person responsible for the accident will be found and brought to justice.

London was laid to rest on August 4th.
