Home News Driver flees accident scene after hitting pedal cyclist
The Police are on the hunt for a driver who fled the scene after hitting a pedal cyclist along the New Road Public Road, Essequibo Coast, Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam).
The injured cyclist has been identified as 61-year-old O’Neil Garrick of New Road, Essequibo Coast.
Based on information received, the motor car driven by a 39-year-old man of Lima Housing Scheme, Essequibo Coast, was proceeding along the roadway when the pedal cyclist, who was heading in the same direction, swerved to avoid going into a pothole but instead ended up in the path of the car, thus resulting in a collision.
As a result, Garrick received several bodily injuries and was taken to the Charity Public Hospital in a conscious state but was later transferred to the Suddie Public Hospital where he was admitted a patient.
Immediately after the accident, the driver reportedly fled the scene, leaving the motor car behind. The car was subsequently impounded and a manhunt was launched for the driver.
