Biker dies in crash

Mo­tor­cy­clists were ex­pect­ed to turn up at the crash site in South Oropouche last evening where vet­er­an rid­er Robert Seales died on Sun­day night.

A re­port stat­ed that around 10.30 pm, Seales, 47, of Mon­trose, Ch­agua­nas was rid­ing along the Solomon Ho­choy High­way Ex­ten­sion. As he tried to ride around the round­about at the Shore of Peace cre­ma­tion site, he crashed in­to a con­crete bar­ri­er.

His body was thrown off the mo­tor­cy­cle and stopped sev­er­al me­tres away. Fel­low mo­torists rushed across to help, but he was al­ready dead.

South Oropouche po­lice re­spond­ed to the scene and cor­doned off the area. Seales’ body was tak­en to the mor­tu­ary at the San Fer­nan­do Gen­er­al Hos­pi­tal.

Fel­low rid­ers blamed the low light­ing around the round­about and planned to protest the con­di­tions there.
