CRITICALLY INJURED AUA STUDENT DIES

One of two medical students left critically injured in a road accident on October 23 has died.

Kenneth Mathew, 21, passed away this morning at the Sir Lester Bird Medical Centre.

The AUA student’s parents had been in the process of trying to fly him to India for specialist medical care.

Mathew and 19-year-old Priyanjana Das were struck while attempting to cross Friars Hill Road.

Karim Edwards, 45, who apparently initially fled the scene before later handing himself in to police, was charged with dangerous driving last week. Those charges are likely to now be upgraded.

Das, who had her right arm amputated due to injuries sustained in the incident, remains in the hospital’s ICU.
