AT ABOUT 02:00hrs yesterday, the unidentified driver of motorcycle CG 6446 was very grievously injured when the allegedly drunken driver of motor car PGG 8790 struck him off his motorcycle at the corner of Regent and Albert Streets in Bourda, Georgetown.The out-of-control car came to a stop after it had shattered a utility pole, and the driver and a companion emerged, appearing very inebriated.
Shortly afterwards, the unconscious motorcyclist was allegedly run over by a minibus, and his body was left lying on the roadway for in excess of half an hour, because efforts to contact an ambulance failed, and nobody wanted to transport him to a hospital.
The female pillion rider who had been with the motorcyclist at the time of the accident has also been hospitalised.
The driver of the motor car is being questioned by the police, but it is uncertain whether he had been arrested following the accident.
