A young motorcyclist in Linden became one of the country’s latest road fatalities on Sunday morning when he crashed into another motorcyclist who had failed to stop at the major road and ended up in his path.
The dead youth was identified as 18-year-old Odel Taylor of One Mile Wismar. The accident occurred at around 7:40 on Sunday morning.
A police statement said Taylor was riding along the One Mile Public road when another motorcycle that was being operated by another youth crossed the road into his path.
The impact resulted in Taylor being pitched onto the roadway. He was not wearing a helmet at the time and died after being rushed to a nearby hospital in Linden.
The rider of the other motorcycle has since been identified as 22-year-old man David Narine. The Police report said he fled the scene of the accident and is still to be arrested for questioning.
The investigations are ongoing.
