“These two men like they thought they coulda beat this car because I was riding closely behind them and although my bike faster than they own I say let me stop because this car got the right away,” one source stated.

As a result, the motorcycle CF 9765 smashed into the door of the car’s passenger seat.

An eyewitness further noted that while one of the motorcyclists was pitched some 15 feet away along Middle Street the other was flung across Carmichael Street. The driver of the car was unharmed.

When this newspaper arrived at the GPH, the two injured men were in the Accident and Emergency Unit. Shortly after, one of them was rushed to have a CT scan done.
