Biker dies on spot after colliding with pole
The sudden death of a Biabou man has left several members of his family in denial.
On Monday May 11, Fidel Davis, a 34-year-old chauffeur of Cedars was riding motorcycle PW177, a black and white Kawasaki Ninja, when he crashed at the Biabou public road.
Davis was travelling towards Georgetown on the motorcycle when he lost control and collided with an electrical pole in the vicinity of the Biabou Bridge, a release from the police said.
He was pronounced dead on the scene by the District Medical Officer (DMO).
On Thursday, speaking from her home in Stubbs, Davis’s grandmother Herline Leigertwood said she was saddened by the death. She said she last saw her grandson on Saturday in Kingstown.
“I feel it because he been me hand and me foot,” said Herline.
Davis’s aunt Ruby Leigertwood also said she felt saddened by the sudden loss.
“He was a very good person,” said Ruby.
The dead man’s mother refused to comment. She said she was busy preparing for the funeral and would reach out to SEARCHLIGHT at a later date.
Davis’s death is the third road fatality this year and reports are that he was not wearing a helmet when he made the fatal ride.
