Little Adrika Croker could not have enjoyed her Easter holidays because she has been bed-ridden for almost a month.
The eight-year-old Tucville Primary School student of YY8 North East La Penitence, Georgetown was struck down by a motor cycle on March, 14, last.
She was admitted to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC)’s pediatric ward for almost two weeks with abrasions and a fractured pelvis bone.
The motorcyclist was detained by the police for three days and was subsequently released. He is said to be in the United States of America now.
Yesterday, little Croker told Kaieteur News that “little by little” she recalled what transpired that day.
She said that she was standing on the “white line” in front of her school, waiting to cross the road when a bus stopped. She recalled hearing the conductor telling her to “go over the road.”
“When I was walking over the white line, the motor bike come and knock me.” she recalled.
Her father, Okessht Croker, told this publication that the cyclist visited his daughter once in the hospital. The cyclist’s spouse saw her once also.
He said that after that “one time” no one had visited her again.
Meanwhile, eight-year-old Ashley Gouvia of Kingely Village, East Bank Berbice, who was struck down by a pickup on her way to the #29 Primary School on March 27, last is said to be in a “fine” condition and recuperating at home.
