Sixty-four-year-old cyclist Conrad Alleyne of Lot 33 Hague, West Coast Demerara was struck down on the Boerasirie Bridge by a vehicle being driven by a Police Superintendent attached to the ‘D’ Division (West Bank Demerara-East Bank Essequibo) on Wednesday at about 19:20h.Rushed to the Leonora Cottage Hospital, he was later transferred to the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPHC), where he succumbed to his injuries.Alleyne’s body is at the Ezekiel Funeral Home, awaiting a post-mortem examination.Police information revealed that the Superintendent, who was driving motorcar PTT 992 in an easterly direction along the northern side of the bridge, said he felt the vehicle had struck something, and upon inspection he saw the cyclist lying on the bridge with injuries about his body.However, a breathalyser test conducted on the Superintendent showed that he had consumed more than the legal limit of alcohol. He has since been taken into Police custody.Less than two weeks ago, Akemo Anthony Bristol of Lot 338 East Ruimveldt, Georgetown, a 23-year-old father of one, died following a collision on Mandela Avenue with a GPF vehicle being driven by a Police rank, who also was said to be under the influence of alcohol.Based on information received at that time, the Police Constable and Bristol were both proceeding along Mandela Avenue when the collision occurred. The impact reportedly flung Bristol into a nearby gutter, while his motorcycle ended up under the minibus.Extracted from the gutter with visible injuries about his body, Bristol was rushed to the GPHC, but succumbed to his injuries while receiving medical attention.
