A tragic accident that occurred on Sunday night has left one person dead and several others injured. The incident took place at approximately 23:00hrs at the intersection of Camp and Church Streets, Georgetown.

The collision involved two motor vehicles: car PAD 8395, owned and driven by 34-year-old Shawn Phillip Parasram, and car PTT 7041, owned and driven by 63-year-old Sheik Rahman. Additionally, the latter vehicle was carrying two passengers, 30-year-old Ronda Holder and Natisha Natalie Fernandes, also 30 years old, from Kitty, Georgetown.

Preliminary inquiries revealed that car #PAD 8395 was traveling east on the southern side of Church Street when it approached the intersection with Camp Street.

Following the incident, officers from the Brickdam Traffic Department arrived at the scene to gather evidence and conduct an investigation.
