“The driver of the vehicle lost control before the vehicle hit the motorbike. It appears the two were thrown on the ground on impact,” said Naibei.

A scuffle ensued as residents threatened to lynch the driver who managed to escape on foot, leaving his car behind.

Police have launched a manhunt for the driver. The officers also impounded the abandoned car.
