“Upon arrival they observed a motorcycle on the right hand side of the road when heading East of the Bullet Tree Road and what the police know so far is the motorcycle was being driven by one Manuelito Ye of a Bullet Tree Village address and travelling behind him was one Abel Najaro thirty three years in a red Toyota car when he observed that Ye seemingly loss control of his cycle and fell to the ground. As result, himself and his passenger then went over to assist Ye and whilst doing so a white Prado coming from the opposite direction being driven by one Ernesto Urbina came on to the scene and knocked down all three persons. Mr. Ye received the greater of those injuries and had to be transported to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where he succumbed to those injuries on Sunday.”
