The deceased has been identified as Wilbert Sydney of Lot 70 Half Mile, Wismar, Linden.

Based on information gathered, the fatal accident occurred around 21:30hrs as Sydney was travelling on his motorcycle, CH 5634, proceeding east.

He reportedly attempted to overtake mini-bus BVV 6450, which was at the same time, in the process of overtaking motor lorry GRR 6181, when the motorcycle collided with motor car, PNN 4510 which was travelling in the opposite direction.

This resulted in Sydney being tossed from his motorcycle and hitting the motor lorry before landing several feet away on the road.

His severed arm was found some distance away from where his body landed.

The drivers of the motor car and lorry were also hospitalized for injuries.
