DEAD: Sherrane Hollingsworth

A FIFTH Street, Meten-Meer-Zorg, West Coast Demerara (WCD) resident, identified as Sherrane Hollingsworth, died on Saturday after she was struck down by a motor lorry while attempting to cross the West Demerara Public Road at De Kinderen.

The police say that the 56-year-old was on the northern side of the road, observing the flow of traffic before attempting to cross to the southern side of it.
Unfortunately, she was struck down in the process of doing so by a motor lorry bearing registration number GZZ 4439.

The lorry was being driven by 60-year-old Keith Peters, of Ruimzeight Gardens, WCD, who was heading west at the time.

Police say that the impact caused Hollingsworth to fall onto the surface of the road, and sustain injuries about her body. She was picked up by public-spirited citizens in an unconscious state, and taken to the Leonora Cottage Hospital, also on the West Demerara, but was pronounced dead on arrival.

Video footage of the accident seen by this newspaper revealed that the woman was almost to the other end of the road when the speeding truck ran into her and dragged her body before coming to a stop.

The driver tested negative for alcohol in his system. He was served with a notice of intended prosecution, and remains in custody as investigations are ongoing.
