Mauritius: A driver fatally reverses a police officer
While the police presence is reinforced on the roadside at the approach of Christmas and end of year, a simple routine check turned to tragedy on Saturday night at Flic-en-Flac in the West of the Island.
 
A driver at the wheel of a 4 x 4 wanting to overtake overthrew a young police motorcyclist of 31 years old in service on the other lane of the road.  The police officer was dragged 50 meters under the violence of the shock.

The driver involved in the accident had initially refused to submit a breathalyzer test at the scene of tragedy, before later undergoing a blood at the hospital.
