3 injured in motorcycle accidents

Three persons were injured over the weekend in separate accidents involving motorcycles.
Injured are 24-year-old Semaul Welcome; Maroldo Durant Marvin, 18, and his 14-year-old pillion rider.
Reports are that Police in Berbice, Region Six, (East Berbice-Corentyne), are on the hunt for the driver of an unregistered minibus who hit two teenagers on a motorcycle.
Eighteen-year-old Marvin and his teen pillion rider, both of North Road, New Amsterdam, Berbice, were on motorcycle CE 9855 around 22:00h on Saturday evening on Main Road, New Amsterdam, when the silver-coloured minibus with trade plate MP#1 struck them.
Investigations revealed that the bus with trade plate MP#1 was proceeding east along Pitt Street, New Amsterdam, Berbice, at a fast rate of speed and turned north onto Main Road without stopping and the right-side front of the vehicle collided with the left portion of the motorcycle, which was proceeding north along the western drive lane on Main Road at a fast rate of speed.
As a result of the collision, the motorcyclist and the pillion rider were thrown from the motorcycle and landed onto the road’s surface, resulting in them receiving injuries.
They were picked up in a conscious state by public-spirited citizens and placed in the minibus, which took them to New Amsterdam Public Hospital for medical attention. However, the driver drove away afterwards.
The two teenagers were seen and examined by the doctor on duty who admitted them for observation in the Accident and Emergency Department suffering from cuts and bruises about their bodies.
Checks were later made to locate motor vehicle MP#1 which was found parked in a yard at Bristol Street, East Canje, Berbice.
The vehicle was seen with damages consistent with a collision. Police said that several efforts were made to locate the owner and driver of the vehicle but this proved futile.
Meanwhile, a Tuschen, East Bank Essequibo, Region Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara) resident is now hospitalised with a fractured hip and left foot after his motorcycle collided with a car late Saturday night.
The accident occurred at about 22:30h on the Tuschen Public Road.
Police said enquiries disclosed that the car was proceeding west along the southern side of the road when the driver turned north into the path of the motorcycle, which was proceeding east along the northern side of the said road.
The motorcycle collided with the left side front door of the motor car.
As a result of the collision, the motorcyclist fell onto the road’s surface and received a fractured hip and left foot, along with lacerations to his neck, chest, lip and stomach.
He was picked up in a conscious state by public-spirited citizens and taken to the Leonora Cottage Hospital but as a result of the extent of his injures he was later transferred to the West Demerara Regional Hospital where he was further treated and admitted as a patient.
The driver of the motor car, a resident of Zeelugt North, EBE, along with his vehicle, was escorted to the Leonora Police Station. A breathalyser test was conducted and showed zero micrograms of alcohol. Investigations are ongoing in both incidents.
