A Salisbury man who died from a motorcycle accident at the weekend has been identified as 23-year-old Gael Andrew, police have confirmed.
Police Acting Superintendent Claude Weekes reported that Andrew was riding east to west along the Salisbury public road on his Yahama scooter when he veered off the road and subsequently plunged into a house nearby.
Andrew suffered considerable head and facial injuries from the accident and was pronounced dead at Princess Margaret Hospital in Roseau, Weekes disclosed.
“He seemed to have gone off the road and ended up on a pavement. Having gone on the pavement he went airborne and plunged into a house close by,” Weekes stated
Weekes added: “The preliminary investigations suggest so far, that at the time he was riding he was not wearing the helmet and there were no other protective gear.”
