Man dies three days after crash

A 40-year-old man died at San Fernando General Hospital on Tuesday night, three days after he crashed his car following an argument at a bar.

Norrel Nandanlal, of Gangaram Trace, Brothers Road, Tabaquite, suffered massive head injuries when he lost control of his black Nissan B-12 and crashed on Saturday.

The accident occurred at Bhagwantie Road, New Grant, at around 2.30 a.m. Police said Nandanlal, who was self-employed, was returning home after a night out with friends when he crashed.

He was taken to San Fernando General Hospital where he was treated at the Intensive Care Unit, where he died at around 8 p.m. on Tuesday.

Nandanlal, who was divorced, was a father of one. A relative said he saw Nandanlal liming at a bar at Matilda Road, Princes Town, around 12.30 a.m. on Saturday.

An autopsy performed yesterday found that Nandanlal died from cerebral injuries.
