wife well after
President of the Police Social and Welfare
Association Inspector Anand Ramesar and
his wife, Vanessa Friday-Ramesar, escaped
death when their car crashed on the Sir
Solomon Hochoy Highway yesterday.
The couple, from Borde Narve, Princes
Town, were taken to the San Fernando General
Hospital, whose medical director Dr Anand
Chatoorgoon said Ramesar, 42, had suffered
three pelvic fractures.
"He is stable and fully conscious. He was
seen by orthopaedic doctors and will soon be
admitted to the Orthopaedic Ward for obser-
vation," he said yesterday.
Chatoorgoon said he was told Friday-Rame-
sar, 35, was fine and walking about. She was
General secretary of the association Sgt
Michael Seales said the couple were doing
well but were in severe pain.
He said there was a heavy downpour around
11.30 am while the Ramesars were driving
north along the highway in their Toyota Rav
4 and it skidded near the Claxton Bay over-
It struck the guard rail and flipped five times
before stopping on the shoulder, he added.
Ramesar was heading to Barataria to drop
off Vanessa, who is an attorney at British
American before he headed to work in Port-
Seales said because the Ramesars were wear-
ing their seatbelts and driving under the speed
limit their injuries were not worse.
He added: "He has done an ultrasound and
they are waiting for the results to view and
then take the necessary action. He is conscious
but in excruciating pain.
"Thankfully they both were wearing their
seatbelts and the airbags were deployed in the
vehicle which would have assisted in min-
imising the amount of pain they have now."
He said acting Commissioner of Police
Stephen Williams had said all resources would
be made available to assist their recovery.
"Right now the association is concerned.
We hope he makes a full recovery. We have
not gotten a full report of his condition but
the executive and the membership are praying
for a speedy and full recovery," Seales added.
