A tractor driver was fatally injured after a tractor toppled over in the quiet village of Moraikobai, situated along the Mahaicony River in Region Five (Mahaica-Berbice).
The incident occurred on Saturday around 17:00h.
Divisional Commander Marlon Chapman told Guyana Times that the driver was returning home from a lumber yard in the area when the tractor somehow toppled over, pinning him down and eventually killing him.
Guyana Times understands that his body is currently at the Lyken Funeral Home and the post-mortem examination will be performed today.
Reliable sources told this newspaper that foul play might have been involved in the accident; however, the Divisional Commander said he was not aware of those allegations.
Nonetheless, he said the Police will be launching an investigation into the matter.
