The incident, which involved a motorcar driven by a 51-year-old woman of Prashad Nagar, Georgetown, occurred at around 17:30hrs on Sunday.

The motorcar was proceeding east along the northern side of Aubrey Barker Road while the motorcycle was proceeding in the same direction at the rear of the motorcar.

He was later admitted a patient at the hospital.

A notice of intended prosecution was served on the driver of the motorcar who is presently in police custody assisting with the investigation.
