The motorcyclist who died on Friday morning following a collision along the Mon Repos Public Road, on the East Coast of Demerara, has been identified as 18-year-old Glenroy McKenzie.
McKenzie died on Friday morning after he collided with a truck.
In a press release, Guyana Police Force spokesman Jairam Ramlakhan said the accident occurred around 1.15 am.
According to Ramlakhan, preliminary investigations indicated that the driver of the truck, which carried licence plate GRR 6081, was proceeding east along the northern carriageway of the road, while the rider of CG 3711 was proceeding in the opposite lane.
Ramlakhan said the motorcyclist, who was reportedly speeding, made a sudden turn into the eastern side of the road, lost control and collided with the truck.
As a result, McKenzie fell to the road and his head came into contact with the vehicle’s rear right wheel.
The truck driver, who is a Beterverwagting Housing Scheme resident, underwent a breathalyser test and it found no alcohol in his breath.
