A Rennes public prosecutor Philippe Astruc said that a young man died on Wednesday from being struck by a motorcycle at an urban rodeo on Sunday in Rennes. This information was confirmed by France Bleu Armorique.
The radio reported that the 19-year-old died from his injuries. After being placed in cardio-respiratory arrest following the crash, he was taken to hospital and sustained head trauma and internal bleeding.
On Sunday afternoon, the young man was killed in an urban rodeo held in Rennes' Beaulieu district. France Bleu reports that the 18-year-old driver of the motorcycle that struck him was doing a wheelie. A six-year old child was riding on the handlebars. Although he sustained minor injuries, he was quickly discharged from the hospital.
Rennes prosecutor said that the driver was still in hospital and had been taken into police custody Tuesday evening. His police custody was "no longer compatible" with his health and had to be lifted. Philippe Astruc added that "the investigations are continuing in special under the qualification of murder."
