Police are investigating a fatal incident which occurred about 16:40hrs yesterday (Tuesday) at Lot 8 Saywah, Cane Grove, East Coast Demerara (ECD).

The incident involved motorcar HD 1726, driven by a 38-year-old resident of Cane Grove and his mother, Ena Seecharran, a 63-year-old Housewife of above-mentioned address.

According to the distraught father of the driver and husband of the deceased, the car was parked on the bridge in front of his yard, facing south, whilst Ena Seecharran was standing in the yard behind the gate, which was locked at the time.

The driver started the vehicle and drove forward, crashing through the gate and colliding with Seecharan (who was standing behind the gate, and directly in front of the vehicle).

The left side of the car ran over her which caused her to receive injuries about her body. The vehicle ended up in a concrete wall in the yard and came to a standstill. The woman was picked up by her husband and placed into motorcar PRR 1167 and taken to the Mahaicony Public Hospital where she was pronounced dead on arrival.

Police are looking for the son who fled the scene. It is so far unclear if the act was deliberate on the part of the driver. Investigations continue.
