The 22-year-old male motorcyclist seriously injured in a collision with a taxi around 3:30am on Sunday, June 9th on Harrington Sound Road in Smith’s parish – near the junction with Town Hill Road – was flown overseas by air ambulance for further medical treatment.

A police spokesman said: “At last check this morning (June 10th) the injured 21-year-old male pillion passenger also involved was recovering in stable condition on a general ward at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, where he is receiving treatment for a leg injury.

Inquiries continue and any witnesses are now asked to call the Roads Policing Unit on 247-1788 at the earliest opportunity.”

Meanwhile, the female visitor injured in a livery cycle crash on Sunday is listed in stable condition on a general ward.

The 48-year-old American woman is “receiving treatment for non-life threatening head and leg injuries”, following a single vehicle rental scooter crash that occurred on Sunday near the Fairmont Southampton resort.

It appears that the female visitor was riding the rental scooter west along South Road when she crashed after going off the road on to a dirt path and then back on to South Road. Thankfully, her injuries are not as serious as first thought,” a spokesman said.

Any witnesses are now encouraged to call Constable Tavin Trott on the main police telephone number 295-0011.”
