A late night drinking spree ended in the death of a 26-year-old man around 01:50 hrs. He was involved in an accident at the intersection of Carmichael and Middle Streets, Georgetown.
Dead is Jason Marks, 26, of East Ruimveldt, Georgetown. He died while receiving treatment at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation. Jacobs was travelling in a vehicle, PMM 528, with 17-year-old Mark Jacobs of Lot 32 Campbellsville and Timothy Fairbian, 26, of Lot 212 Charlotte Street, Georgetown.
The vehicle which was being driven by a 26-year-old resident of Fourth Street, Alexander Village, was proceeding east along Middle Street when it collided with a car, PRR 4249, that was heading north on Carmichael Street.
Only the driver was in the second vehicle.
The police said that the driver of the jeep that was transporting the three occupants failed to stop at the intersection of Carmichael and Middle Streets and as a result, collided with the car.
The collision caused the motor jeep to topple twice before it came to a stop. The occupants of the vehicle received severe injuries and at least two persons were unconscious when they were picked up from the scene and rushed to the hospital.
Jason Marks succumbed shortly after reaching the hospital while Timothy Fairbian is said to be in a critical condition. Mark Jacobs was treated and sent away.
None of the drivers were injured. The police said that breathalyzer tests conducted on both drivers found them to be above the prescribed limit.
They remained in custody to assist with the investigation.
The Guyana Standard was told that Marks, Jacobs, Fairbian along with the driver of the vehicle were out partying before the accident. They were allegedly heading to another entertainment spot when the collision occurred.
