Rudra Sookdeo, 40, of Coalmine in San­gre Grande died in­stant­ly when a ve­hi­cle crashed in­to him while dri­ving along the Churchill Roo­sevelt High­way on Mon­day morn­ing

The dri­ver of the oth­er ve­hi­cle was charged on Mon­day af­ter­noon for dri­ving un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol af­ter a breath­a­lyz­er was ad­min­is­tered to him at the hos­pi­tal

Ac­cord­ing to a po­lice re­port, short­ly af­ter 3am the 30-year-old dri­ver of a black Nis­san Navara said he was head­ing east along the high­way when he heard an ex­plo­sion in the vicin­i­ty of Food­bas­ket Mar­ket­place in Ari­ma

The dri­ver lost con­trol of the van which crossed the me­di­an and crashed head-on with a grey Hon­da Civic which was be­ing dri­ven by Sookdeo

Of­fi­cers from the Ari­ma Fire Sta­tion who vis­it­ed the scene had to use the hy­draulic cut­ter or the jaws-of-life to free Sookdeo’s body from the man­gled wreck
