A FORMER marathon and grass track runner-turned-biker is in a semi-conscious state in the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation after being injured on Sunday night in a motorcycle crash at Nismes, West Bank Demerara.
Peter Howard, 55, of Diamond, East Bank Demerara was riding his motorcycle along the Nismes Public Road, going to a shop, when he crashed. However, although details are sketchy, relatives said they were informed that the accident occurred shortly after 21:00hrs on Sunday.
They were however unable to say how the accident happened. Howard suffered injuries to his head, left knee and shoulder. He also suffered abrasions to his left temple and was bleeding from his left ear. Late yesterday he was unable to communicate with anyone at his bedside.
This is the second time that Howard has sustained life-threatening injuries in motorcycle accidents. Around 2000 he crashed somewhere at West Demerara and suffered severe injuries to his left leg, including a fractured knee. To date, he remains with steel implanted in his leg.
