Accident survivors still in hospital

Monday, August 25 2014

AN ailing Princes Town pensioner, who on Friday survived a vehicular accident which claimed the life of his 52 year-old son, was fighting for his life at hospital up to last evening.

Pensioner Rampersad Matadeen, 71, police said, remained in a serious condition at the San Fernando General Hospital. Apart from the injuries sustained in the accident, Matadeen has colon cancer and diabetes.

The other survivor of the accident, Andre Cameau, 27, was also warded at the hospital and police said he was in a stable condition.

Police reports are that at about 8.30 pm on Friday, Matadeen’s son — Ramlal aka “Roger” — was driving on the south-bound lane of the Solomon Hochoy Highway in his black Nissan Almera motorcar, upon reaching near the Macaulay flyover in Claxton Bay, Cameau who was proceeding ahead of Ramlal on the same lane, suffered a blackout.

Police reports are as a result of the blackout Cameau’s Toyota Fielder wagon spun several times, and turned northwards to Ramlal’s approaching car and collided, killing him instantly. Cameau, is a musician of Bacchus Street, St Augustine.

The pensioner, who was the front-seat passenger in his son’s car, and Cameau, the lone occupant of the wagon, were rushed to the hospital.

The Matadeen and Ramlal were returning to their respective homes at Broomage Trace #2, Princes Town, having dropped off wedding invitations to relatives in Chaguanas.

Ramlal’s son Adesh, 22, and his fiancé Shamela Rampersad were scheduled to tie the knot on November 27. But due to the death, family members admitted that the wedding is now in limbo.

Ramlal, a father of four, worked as a Private for Hire (PH) driver along the Princes Town to San Fernando route. On the Facebook post of one of Ramlal’s daughters, it stated: “God give us strength and courage to stand up tall for his funeral... The passing of a dad is so very hard to take. His memory will forever be a source of comfort.”

Ramlal’s autopsy is expected to take place today.

Cpl Sookdeo of the St Margaret’s Police Station is continuing investigations.
