Man crashes on motorbike just after midnight Sunday morning

A young man laid on a sidewalk with broken limbs broken just West off Soldier Road just over an our ago [12:30am] as EMS personal came to his rescue.

The young man was diving a noisy motorbike in a reckless manner when he struck a turning vehicle. The truck and the man driving it is fine, but the driver of that motorbike was seen quiet like a church mouse as he sat motionless but alive.

From a closer inspection of his legs all we could say is this; “Get the wheel chair.”

Look how friends and reckless driving could put you on wealth-fare for the rest of your natural life. Drive safe Bahamas. [ DISCLAIMER: TO THE SLOW READERS OUT THERE THIS PHOTO IS NOT THE PICTURE OF THE SCENE]
