A fourth person has died as a result of that smash up on the Linden Soesdyke Highway, which took place on Wednesday night.
Three persons died on the spot last night, while the fourth victim passed away this morning while undergoing surgery.
The dead persons have been identified as Dextroy Griffith, David Primus and Raul Aaron. They were all killed on the spot. The 4th person who died this morning has been identified as Lauron Mendonca of Linden.
Two other persons including the wife of one of the dead men, are still in the hospital with multiple injuries.
All of the men who died are from the Linden community.
The two cars involved in the smash up were traveling along the highway in opposite directions when they slammed head on into each other just before 7 o clock last night in the Seweyo area.
The impact of the collision left most of the persons pinned in the vehicles. The Guyana Fire Service Linden had to rush to the scene to cut apart the cars.
With heavy rainfall pounding the highway almost daily for the past two weeks, there have been many warnings for drivers to cut back on the speed and exercise more caution along the highway.
Investigations are ongoing.
