The crash occurred near the TEM Store, and police said the motorcycle the woman was driving was struck from behind by two males travelling on a motorcycle. The male passenger suffered “minor abrasions” according to the police.
The male driver was subsequently breathalysed following the incident. The test revealed he was “two and a half” times over the legal breath-alcohol limit. The man was arrested and placed in lock-up.
Meanwhile, a man holidaying on Rarotonga died on Wednesday night, police have confirmed.
The “sudden death” of a male visiting from New Zealand had been reported to them by the Ministry of Health on Wednesday evening, a police spokesman said.
A doctor was awaiting test results before a cause of death could be confirmed, the spokesman said.
On the same night another visitor was evacuated to New Zealand by air ambulance after suffering a heart attack earlier in the day.
