Pillion rider seriously injured in Żebbuġ accident

A 32-year-old woman was grievously injured when the motorcycle she was riding pillion in was involved in a collision in Mdina Road, Żebbuġ.

The collision, which took place at around noon on Sunday, involved a Toyota Porte driven by a 49-year-old man from Żabbar and a Harley Davidson motorbike being driven by a 40-year-old man from Rabat.

The Toyota driver was uninjured, but the two persons riding the Harley Davidson were both taken to Mater Dei Hospital for treatment.

While the man’s injuries were slight, the woman had sustained more serious injuries, though she is not in danger of dying.

Magistrate Martin Farrugia is leading an inquiry, and police investigations are ongoing.
