Dead: Leroy Hercules

Twenty-eight-year-old Leroy Hercules, a Guyana Defence Force (GDF) rank, is now dead and another person injured following an accident that occurred on Plum Park, Farms Field Access Road, E Field Sophia, Greater Georgetown, on Monday evening.
The accident involved motorcycles CG 9908, that was ridden by a resident of Plum Park, Sophia, and CJ 7787 which was ridden by Hercules.
Reports are that at about 19:30h both the Sophia resident and Hercules were speeding in opposite directions when they collided.
As a result of the impact, both men fell onto the roadway, where they sustained injuries about their bodies. They were both picked up by public-spirited persons and rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where Hercules was pronounced dead. The rider of CG 9908 was admitted as a patient at the medical facility.
Both motorcycles have been lodged with the Police and will be examined by a Licensing and Certifying Officer.
Just about two weeks ago, a speeding motorcyclist was killed at Arapaima Street, East La Penitence, Georgetown, and two pedestrians were injured, after he collided with a utility pole.
Dead is 26-year-old Kemston Richards of Plum Park, Sophia. The injured persons have been identified as 24-year-old Kevin Fletcher and a 15-year-old from East La Penitence.
Richards was proceeding north on Arapaima Street with motorcycle CK 7533. Due to the fast rate at which he was travelling, the biker lost control and collided with a utility pole.
He fell onto the roadway and sustained injuries about his body.
The motorcycle travelled some distance in an eastern direction and collided with the pedestrians.
The now dead man was picked up in an unconscious state by public-spirited citizens and taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation, where he was pronounced dead. (G9)
