T&TEC foreman killed in crash
Six years after he survived a car crash in which his mother was killed, T&TEC foreman Navin Mahabir lost his life when his car ran off the road and collided with two vehicles in La Romaine early yesterday morning. Mahabir, 38, of Guapo Main Road, Fyzabad, died on the spot after his Nissan Cefiro spun out of control along the South Trunk Road at around 1.30 am and collided head-on with a black Mercedes Benz driven by Adrian Wong, of Feroze Khan Avenue, St Augustine.
Police said Mahabir’s car also collided a yellow Galant driven by Isiah Francois, 33, of New Village, Point Fortin. Wong and Francois were taken by ambulance to the San Fernando General Hospital. District Medical Officer Dr Ramgoolam visited the scene and ordered Mahabir’s body removed to the San Fernando mortuary. Mahabir’s brother Prakash said he did not know where Mahabir was heading when he left home at around 11 pm.
He said Mahabir was promoted to the rank of senior foreman at T&TEC two weeks ago and was looking forward to buying his own home. “He was very proud of his achievement because he studied and trained for two years before he got the position...He was looking forward to buying his own place,” Prakash said. He said Mahabir’s common-law wife Marion Balkaran was inconsolable and had to be sedated.
Mahabir had two children, Mark, 13, and Javid, nine, from a previous relationship. “Since his promotion he was putting in a lot of extra hours,” Prakash said. Mahabir’s mother Linda, died on April 23, 2006, in an accident at Fyzabad Main Road. She was a passenger in a grey Nissan Primera driven by Mahabir which collided with another vehicle near the Fyzabad Composite School. Cpl Seepersad of the San Fernando Police Station is continuing investigations into yesterday’s fatal accident.
