A hit-and-run accident today along the Amelia’s Ward Public Road in Linden has left a 21-year-old man dead.
The dead man has been identified as Dale Nelson of Lot 16-11 Central Amelia’s Ward Linden.
According to the Guyana Police Force’s (GPF) Corporate Communications Unit (CCU), the accident involved motorcar PGG 764 and motorcycle CK 7806 driven by 18-year-old Julian Graham.
The CCU noted that Nelson, who was the pillion rider, was not wearing a safety helmet. The CCU said that the motorcar and motorcycle were proceeding in the same direction when the right-side front portion of the car collided with the left rear part of the motorcycle.
As a result of the impact, the motorcyclist and the pillion rider fell onto the road’s surface and received injuries on their bodies.
