A 42-year-old motorcyclist is now hospitalized at New Amsterdam Hospital after colliding with a car, which overturned in his path on Springlands Public Road, Corentyne, Berbice.
The incident happened just around 15: 50h on Thursday when a CK4164 motorcycle driven by Dwayne Rose of Race Course, Springlands was forced to deflect from the path of the PRR8473 motor car driven by Urman Yasseen, 42, of Corriverton.
Police said Rose was moving south along the eastbound drive lane at a normal speed while Yasseen was moving in the opposite direction. However, he made a west-to-east u-turn across the road to the motorcyclist’s path forcing him to turn left to avoid a collision.
Nevertheless, despite his effort, Rose’s motorcycle collided with the front left side of the car.
As a result of the impact, he collapsed on the road surface where he sustained injuries to his body.
He was picked up in a conscious state by citizens of public spirit and taken to Skeldon Public Hospital, where he was examined by a doctor on duty, then transferred to the Public Hospital of New Amsterdam, where he was seen and further examined by a doctor who admitted him patient.
Yasseen is currently in Police custody assisting with the investigation.
