Kaieteur News – A pillion rider identified as 20 year-old Kareem Powley was killed Sunday night at approximately 22:30hrs. after the motorcycle he was on crashed into a pile of stones on Mandela Avenue, Georgetown.
Kaieteur News understands that a motorcycle bearing number plate CK 7783 was proceeding north on the western carriageway of Mandela Avenue at a fast rate of speed when the accident occurred. The motorcyclist, according to police, alleged that a black motor car, which was proceeding in the same direction (but to his right), swerved left and caused him to lose control. This resulted in the motorcycle running off the road and into a pile of stones, which was on the western parapet of the thoroughfare. Consequently, the motorcyclist and the pillion rider fell onto the roadway. They both sustained injuries about their bodies.
The pillion rider, according to police, was picked up in an unconscious state by Emergency Medical Technicians but succumbed to his injuries while receiving medical attention. He was pronounced dead at the scene and was taken to the Lyken Funeral Home. A post mortem examination is expected to be conducted shortly.
Police revealed that a notice of intended prosecution was served on the motorcyclist, who is currently in custody, after a breathalyzer test was conducted and revealed no trace of alcohol in his system.
