A biker and four occupants of a vehicle are in hospital after an accident at Desruisseaux.
The accident involved a motorcycle which collided with a Toyota Corolla station wagon Sunday afternoon.
Eyewitnesses say it occurred about 5.00 pm
The eyewitnesses said the biker was among a group of other motorcyclists when the collision with the station wagon occurred along the Desruisseaux Highway.
As a result of the accident, the biker sustained multiple abrasions.
And the motor car veered off the road with the bike almost under it.
The impact dislodged the car’s dashboard, trapping the front seat passenger.
Emergency responders therefore had to extricate the woman using special equipment.
In addition to the female front seat passenger, the driver and two other occupants were rushed to hospital, along with the biker.
Emergency personnel from Vieux Fort, Micoud and Dennery fire stations responded along with an ambulance from St Jude Hospital
