(CMR) A elderly man has died after falling off the back of a pick-up truck according to exclusive CMR sources.
We understand that the 65-year-old man from North Side was receiving a ride home in the early morning hours on Sunday. He fell off the back of the truck and sustained some head injuries. The driver originally turned back for him after the fall and took him home to his house. The man is said to be from George Town but was residing in North Side at the time of the incident. However, around 9:00 am he was transported to the government hospital and placed on life support.
We understand that he succumbed to his injuries last night around 9:30 pm.
CMR sources indicate there are some serious concerns that the driver may have been intoxicated.
The police have recently warned drivers that it's illegal to carry unsecured loads on open trucks including riders.
