Home News Motorcyclist hospitalised after crashing into car
A motorcyclist is now hospitalised following an accident which occurred in the wee hours of Saturday morning on Brickdam, Georgetown.
Reports are the accident occurred at about 02:05h in the vicinity of the Housing Ministry along Brickdam. Police have since said that the motor car, PJJ 9225, driven by a 28-year-old resident of Section B Patterson, Turkeyen, was proceeding west along the southern side of Brickdam, while the motorcycle, CK 5497, which was driven by a resident of Victoria Road, Plaisance, East Coast Demerara (ECD), was proceeding in the same direction, in front of the car.
It was reported that the car attempted to overtake the motorcycle, when the 35-year-old motorcyclist allegedly swerved into the path of the car, causing them to collide.
As a result, the motorcyclist fell onto the roadway where he received injuries to his body. He was picked up in an unconscious state and taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where he remains a patient.
Meanwhile, the driver of the motor car was arrested and a breathalyser test showed no trace of alcohol. He nevertheless remains in custody as investigations continue.
Just weeks ago, a motorcyclist was admitted to the Georgetown Public Hospital following an accident along the Goed Fortuin Public Road, West Bank Demerara (WBD).
He was identified as 20-year-old Zebbelon Cadogan of Middle Street, Pouderoyen, WBD.
Reports are the cyclist was heading in the same direction and closely behind a motor pick-up driven by a 27-year-old male of Goed Fortuin, when the driver of the pick-up reportedly attempted to make a right turn and, in the process, the motorcyclist collided with the right-side front door of the vehicle.
Cadogan was reportedly knocked off his motorcycle and crashed into a parked motor car. He ended up in a nearby trench. He was picked up in a conscious state and taken to the West Demerara Regional Hospital, but he was referred to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where he was admitted. (G9)
