Nineteen-year-old Treon Goppy, a labourer of NABI Construction and late resident of Enterprise, East Coast Demerara (ECD), has been killed following an accident that occurred along the Buxton Public Road, ECD, on Tuesday at about 12:30h.
Reports are that Goppy was the pillion rider on motorcycle CK 7430, which was being driven by a 22-year-old resident of Friendship, ECD at the time of the accident.
According to the Police, motorcar PWW 6816, driven by a 43-year-old resident of Buxton, was proceeding east along the northern drive lane when the driver allegedly indicated an intention to pull north onto the parapet.
In so doing, the driver said, he felt an impact to the left-side front of his vehicle, and thereafter observed two men lying on the northern parapet with injuries to their bodies.
Emergency Medical Technicians transported both these men to the Georgetown Public Hospital, but Goppy succumbed while receiving medical attention. The motorcyclist sustained injuries to his head, and has since been admitted to the hospital.
A breathalyzer test was conducted on the motorcar driver, but no trace of alcohol was found in his system. He is, however, in Police custody assisting with the ongoing investigation. (G9)
