Guyana: Man dies after collision with motorcar along Berbice River bridge

A father of three has lost his life in a motorcycle crash after his bike collided with a motorcar along the side of the Berbice River bridge entrance on the evening of Sunday, August 28.

The deceased has been identified as Aubrey Sears, aged 43, who is a machine operator and a resident of 298, Number 9 Village, West Coast Berbice, located in Guyana.

As per the official reports, at around 6:00 pm, a motorcar with number plate PPP 2022 was moving towards the east while the motorcycle being driven by Aubry was moving west along the side of the Berbice river bridge entrance, Palmyra.

It has been reported that the motorcyclist was looking backwards while driving, and therefore he rode in the way of the car.

As a result of this, the driver of the motorcycle, Aubrey, lost his control and fell while hitting his head on the road.

Subsequently, the police officials were called and reported about the same incident. Aubrey was picked up and rushed to the New Amsterdam public hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival. His dead body is deposited in the mortuary of the hospital, awaiting a post-mortem examination. Meanwhile, the stepmother of the deceased, Norma Sears, said that Aubrey was employed with a contractor from Ithaca, West Bank Berbice.

Norma also said that when the accident took place, Aubrey was coming back from work to home after performing his duties at a construction site at Number 2 Village, East Canje, Berbice.

Norma said that she saw Aubrey last time moments before he left to go for work on the morning of Sunday, August 28.

She described her stepson as a jovial and kind-hearted person.

Aubrey is the father of three children who are presently said to be in a state of shock.
