Another male motorcyclist was rushed to King Edward VII Hospital with a serious leg injury, following a two vehicle collision with a car.
Police say the accident occurred around 3:35pm this afternoon on North Shore Road in Hamilton Parish, near the junction with Abbott’s Cliff Drive.
Initial information suggests that east bound traffic had come to a halt, to allow a man driving a motor car to exit Francis Patton School, when a male riding a motorcycle overtook the line of halted traffic and collided with the oncoming motor car.
The motorcyclist sustained what was described as a very serious leg injury. No other injuries were reported.
Witnesses are urged to contact PC 2576 Bruce Sandham on 211 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Traffic diversions were put in place at North Shore Road/ Radnor Road and North Shore Road and Trinity Church Road.
Motorists were advised to expect delays for at least 90 more minutes while officers process the scene.
