A 32-year-old Smith’s Parish man was rushed to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital (KEMH), following a three-vehicle accident on St John’s Road in Pembroke on Thursday (Oct 13).

Police say the accident occurred around 4pm near the junction with Cox’s Hill Road.

A spokesman said: “Police, Bermuda Fire & Rescue Service as well as ambulance personnel responded to the scene.

“It appears that a motorcyclist travelling east on St John’s Road struck the back of an eastbound SUV that had come to a stop.

“Apparently the rider, said to be a 32-year-old Smith’s Parish man, then fell into the path of a truck being driven in the opposite direction, ending up under the truck.

“It is understood members of the public also came to the rider’s assistance.

“Once EMTs extracted the 32-year-old man from under the truck, he was transported to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital by ambulance, conscious and breathing, for treatment of various non-life threatening injuries,” he added.

“Area traffic was diverted for approximately two hours while the crash site was processed.

“All three vehicles involved were damaged. The driver of the SUV, said to be a 72-year-old Pembroke man and the driver of the truck, said to be a 46-year-old Pembroke man, were not hurt.

“Inquiries continue and any witnesses are encouraged to call 211.”
