Cyclist’s arm broken after motorcycle hit him

A motorcyclist will be sentenced in October after he admitted breaking the arm of a pedal cyclist in a head-on collision.

Magistrates’ Court heard that Maurico Symons, 28, rode his motorcycle on Somerset Road in Sandys at high speed and overtook other road users.

He lost control and collided with a pedal cyclist on the other side of the road.

The incident happened on November 19 last year.

Symons, from Sandys, pleaded guilty on Thursday to causing grievous bodily harm by driving without due care and attention.

He told the court that medication he was taking at the time had caused him to act in an erratic manner.

Senior magistrate Juan Wolffe ordered a social inquiry report and a mental health assessment on Symons and adjourned the case to October 7.
