1 dead, 1 critical after car crashes into cows

first_imgTwenty-one-year-old Riaz Khan of Lot 38, Block “A” Vergenoegen, East Bank Essequibo was allegedly driving a motor car at a fast rate along the East Bank Essequibo roadway in the wee hours of Saturday, as he and four others tried to catch the ferry that would transport them to the Essequibo Coast (Region Two), where they were to attend a function.Dead: Riaz KhanAt about 2:30h, while in the village of Philadelphia, East Bank Essequibo (EBE), he slammed the vehicle into three cows that were lying on the roadway. The car reportedly toppled several times before coming to a halt, and the impact of this collision caused residents to rush out of their homes to lend assistance to the crash victims.They were rushed to the Leonora Cottage Hospital, where Khan, a teacher at the Guyana Islamic Institute, succumbed to his injures while one Ramzan, of Adventure, Essequibo Coast remains there in critical condition. The other three occupants of the vehicle were treated at a private medical facility, while one was admitted a patient. The three cows involved in the accident were also killed.Farah Khan, mother of the dead man, told Guyana Times she had known that her son was to travel to the Essequibo Coast, but she was not aware when he left home. She said the family received a telephone call at about 03:00h, informing them about the accident; and her husband rushed to the scene, only to see his son’s body lying motionless on the roadway. Assisted by public-spirited persons, her husband rushed the injured men to the Leonora Hospital, where her son was pronounced dead on arrival. He had sustained severe injuries to his head and other parts of his body.The four other occupants of the car were referred to the Georgetown Public Hospital, but were taken to a private city hospital after medical treatment was not immediately forthcoming at the GPHC.Relatives of the injured men have reported waiting for quite some time at the GPHC without their loved ones being attended to.Riaz’s mother added that he had been the second of her four children, and had taught at the Islamic School ever since completing his secondary education.Guyana Times understands that stray animals are prevalent on the western corridor between Vreed-en-Hoop, West Coast Demerara and Parika, East Bank Essequibo.This information has brought into contention the scrapping of the Stray Animal Unit that was knocked under the table by Minister Khemraj Ramjattan upon his assumption to office. The Stray Cattle Unit had been implemented by former Home Affairs Minister Clement Rohee under the PPP/C regime. (Bhisham Mohamed)last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Jese Rodriguez failed to establish himself in the PSG side after his 25 million euro ($29 million) transfer from Real Madrid in 2016 © AFP/File / FRANCK FIFEPARIS, France, Aug 16 – Spanish forward Jese has joined Stoke City on a season-long loan from Paris Saint-Germain, the two clubs announced on Wednesday.“Jese was a man in demand when PSG made it clear they would allow him to leave on loan and we’re delighted he has chosen to join us,” said Stoke chief executive Tony Scholes. “He hasn’t had the happiest of periods in his career in Paris but he’s still only a young man and is hungry to make a big impression in the Premier League.”The 24-year-old Spanish youth international only joined PSG from Real Madrid a year ago but failed to establish himself in the French capital and spent the second half of last season on loan at his native Las Palmas.He won the Champions League twice with Real and was top scorer when Spain lifted the European Under-19 Championship in 2012.He is Stoke manager Mark Hughes’s sixth signing of the season joining the likes of Darren Fletcher, Kurt Zouma, Maxim Choupa-Moting, Bruno Martins Indi and Josh Tymon at The Potters.Jese scored 12 goals in 63 La Liga appearances for Real before joining PSG for 25 million euros ($29 million) but his chances of forcing his way into the Parisian first team slimmed following the world record signing of Brazilian superstar Neymar.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
