An unidentifiable Cuban woman was on Thursday afternoon killed in a fiery incident that occured on the Mabaruma Trail. The accident left several injured with minor burns and in some cases severe injuries.

Police say that the incident occured between 39 and 40 Miles Mabura Trail, involving a minibus and a motor pick-up which resulted in the death of the female Cuban national.

The minibus #BVV 5815, owned by Eon Sinclair of Kitty, Georgetown and driven by 35-year-old Kirk Allicock, a licensed driver, along with thirteen (13) passengers (both Indian and Cuban nationals), and motor pick-up.

The Guyana Standard understands that the minibus #BVV 5915 was proceeding to Mabura on the left side of the trail in the vicinity of 39 and 40 Miles Mabura.

The police further noted that while negotiating a left bend, the motor pick-up which was proceeding in the opposite direction on the right side of the said trail collided with the front portion of the minibus.

As a result of the collision, both vehicles burst into flames. A female Cuban national seated behind the driver was pinned in the minibus when it caught fire — and she perished in the vehicle.

The driver and the other passengers received injuries. They were taken to Linden Hospital, where four persons (two males and two females) were treated and referred to the Georgetown Public Hospital while the driver and others are receiving treatment at the Linden Hospital.
