Motorcycle rider hit by plane in Guyana dies

A man on a motorcycle who collided with a plane as it was landing on a rural airstrip in the South American country of Guyana has died.

Health Minister Leslie Ramsammy said yesterday that 46-year-old farmer Winston Francis had lost his left arm and received severe injuries to the head and face.

Francis was riding along a road that intersects the rural airstrip when the collision occurred late Wednesday.

Authorities urged residents to take extra precautions while on the road as government officials met to talk about improving safety at airstrips in remote jungle communities.

Guyana is part of Caricom because the language that is spoken is english & since most of the islands of the Caribbean speak english it's a perfect fit for business trade & commerce etc,but geographically Guyana is in South America & it's the only english speaking country in South America.

@ Dwayne - you are seriously misinformed. Both Guyana and Bermuda ( which is geographically closer to South Carolina than the island chains that comprise the Caribbean) both are NOW considered part of the Caribbean.

FYI: there is a qualitative difference between "the West Indes" and "the Caribbean" mostly having to do with the Former colonlizing country and linguistic characteristics.

Try again boo, I happen to know my Caribbean history, and my masters in Black studies doesn't hurt either
