Garth David, one of two men who were injured in an accident involving a vehicle in Attorney General Anand Ramlogan’s security detail, said yesterday he plans to take legal action against the driver. David and his friend, Primnath Rampaul, were struck by a black Toyota Prado around 9 am on Monday as they were on their way to the Felicity Presbyterian School to vote in Monday’s Chaguanas West by-election. 

 

 

Rampaul, also known as “Leggins”, fell as he was hit and the SUV reportedly ran over his ankle. He remained at hospital yesterday. Yesterday, David, 59, said he was first struck on his right shoulder by the wing mirror. He said after he was hit he heard a “popping” sound when the Prado rolled over Rampaul’s ankle. “I heard his leg was broken in three places,” David said.

 

 

David, a mechanic, said he wanted new Chaguanas West MP Jack Warner to help him get the framework in place to take legal action against the driver. “I went and vote for Mr Jack and I ent fraid to say so. He help plenty people. We get we road fix and more. “I want to take the driver to court. He just speed and hit we just so,” he added.

 

David said the ambulance took almost an hour to arrive and he used a handkerchief to cover his friend’s wound as he feared it would become infected. The driver did not get out but was eventually stopped on Greenidge Street, Felicity. He returned moments later and was questioned by police.
