The accident, which occurred around 00:30hrs today, involved a White Premio motor car (Registration #PNN 3100) driven at the time by a 27-year-old Montrose resident and a Black Honda motorcycle (#CM 9530) driven by Brummel, who was stationed at Traffic Headquarters and attached to the Commissioner of Police Secretariat.

As a result of the collision, the motorcyclist fell onto the road surface and received injuries on his body. Brummel was picked up in an unconscious state by public-spirited citizens, placed in a Force vehicle and taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where he was seen, examined by a doctor on duty and pronounced dead on arrival.

The driver is in custody, assisting with the investigation.
