Duo rendered unconscious, hospitalised after colliding with horse


A motorcyclist and his pillion rider are said to be in a serious condition at a city hospital after the motorcycle they were travelling on collided with a horse along the Ogle Railway Embankment, East Coast Demerara (ECD) on Saturday.

Injured are 27-year-old Linden Mentis of Vryheid’s Lust, ECD and 20-year-old Esther Marks of South Better Hope, ECD.

Mentis was riding the motorcycle along the northern pathway when an unbranded horse dashed into his path from the southern side. He collided with the rear end of the animal.

Both persons were picked up and taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital in an unconscious state. They are currently receiving medical attention. Police are still investigating.
