Just a matter of weeks after the Bermuda Government unveiled their latest Road Safety Awareness Campaign comes word of yet another driver, arrested on suspicion of impaired driving following a road traffic collision, in a frequent accident spot in Devonshire.
The accident occurred around 5:25pm on Monday, November 5, when police and fellow first responders were dispatched to a reported collision at the Barkers Hill round-a-bout in Devonshire.
A spokesman said: “It now appears that the motorcyclist and car driver involved were each attempting to negotiate the round-a-bout when the collision occurred.
“The injured rider, a 49-year-old woman believed to be from Devonshire, was transported to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital via ambulance for treatment and later discharged.
“The car driver, a 42-year-old man believed to be from St George’s, was arrested on suspicion of impaired driving but later passed the alco-analyser test at Hamilton Police Station.
“He has since been released from police custody pending further inquiries,” he said.
“Traffic diversions were in effect for approximately one hour while the scene was processed.”
Any witnesses who have not already come forward are urged to contact the main police telephone number 295-0011.
