A 26-year-old man died in an ac­ci­dent along the Non­pareil Pub­lic Road, East Coast De­mer­ara (ECD), af­ter be­ing struck by a minibus yes­ter­day af­ter­noon.

Dead is David Aul­der, 26, of Lot 254 Sec­tion ‘A’ Non­pareil, who was rid­ing a mo­tor­cy­cle at a fast rate at the time.

A breathal­yser test per­formed on the 66-year-old-driver of the minibus found that he was driv­ing un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol at the time of the ac­ci­dent. He was sub­se­quently taken into po­lice cus­tody.

Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice, the ac­ci­dent oc­curred around 3.30 pm.

Pre­lim­i­nary in­ves­ti­ga­tions in­di­cated that the minibus, BRR 9843, driven by a res­i­dent of Mon Re­pos Pas­ture, was pro­ceed­ing west along the south­ern carriageway of the Non­pareil Pub­lic Road, while Aul­der, who was the rider of CJ 193, was pro­ceed­ing north along the Coldin­gen Ac­cess Road.

The po­lice said at the time Aul­der was trav­el­ling at a fast rate.

As he ap­proached the in­ter­sec­tion of the Non­pareil Pub­lic Road and the Coldin­gen Ac­cess Road, po­lice said Aul­der failed to stop and turned east. He pro­ceeded along the south­ern side of the pub­lic road against the one way and col­lided with front left side of the bus, po­lice ex­plained.

From the im­pact of the col­li­sion, Aul­der lost con­trol and fell on to the road­way, re­sult­ing in se­vere in­juries. He was picked up in an un­con­scious state by pub­lic-spir­ited per­sons and rushed to Ge­orge­town Pub­lic Hospi­tal, where he was pro­nounced dead on ar­rival.
