Two motorcyclists were involved in a collision on the Demerara Harbour Bridge last evening resulting in both of them being injured and hospitalised at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation, one of them with a broken leg.
The accident which is said to have occurred sometime after 18:00 hours, saw Terrence Smartt of 87 Crane Housing Scheme, West Coast Deme-rara, suffering a broken leg and head injuries and Sandra Barker of 476 Crane Housing Scheme, injuries to various parts of the body.
Information reaching this newspaper said that a car travelling along the Demerara Harbour Bridge made a sudden stop and as a result the two motorcycles, proceeding east along the bridge tried to take evasive action resulting in them colliding with each other.
Up to late last night, relatives were at the hospital clamouring for information regarding the condition of the injured persons.
Police were also taking statements from the injured persons and their relatives at the hospital. This newspaper understood that both motorcyclists were wearing helmets at the time of the accident.
