A brother and sister are hospitalised at the Georgetown Public Hospital after they slammed into a minibus at Foulis Public Road, East Coast Demerara (ECD).
Injured are 18-year-old Bisson Suedatt and 17-year-old Seermattie Suedatt, both of Lot 175 Fourth Street, Foulis, ECD.
Police reports state that at about 16:45h, a minibus bearing registration plates BTT 4262 and driven by a 55-year-old Golden Grove, ECD resident, was travelling East along the northern side of the Foulis Public Road. As the bus was passing another minibus which was stationary on same side of the road, it collided with Bisson Suedatt, who rode a motorcycle out of a street on the northern side of the road, in front of the stationary minibus.
The front of the minibus on the left hand side collided with the motorcyclist, causing Bisson as well as the pillion rider, Seermattie, to be flung from the motorcycle and onto the road, some feet away.
Public spirited persons rushed to the siblings’ assistance and took them to hospital where they were admitted. Bisson suffered a broken jaw while his sister sustained head and neck injuries.
The driver of the minibus is in Police custody assisting with investigations.
