Hardly a day goes by without word of yet another road traffic accident on Bermuda’s roads. And this past week was no exception.
In fact, the daily report from the Bermuda Police Service, carried updates on three separate road traffic accidents in one day alone.
The report, filed on Thursday, March 1, started with word that the 25-year-old male motorcyclist injured in a two-vehicle accident in Southampton, was treated and discharged from King Edward VII Memorial Hospital.
But he was promptly arrested on suspicion of impaired driving.
The accident occurred on Camp Hill, on Wednesday, February 28, around 7:30pm, involving the motorcycle and a van.
Police also reported on March 1, that the 75-year-old male pedestrian injured on Harrington Sound Road, was recovering, in stable condition on a general ward.
He was struck by a 22-year-old male motorcyclist, while crossing the street.
The accident occurred around 4:20pm on Wednesday, February 28, in Smith’s Parish, near the junction with Harrington Hundreds Road.
The pedestrian – believed to be a Smith’s Parish resident is still recovering. The motorcyclist also sustained injuries that apparently “did not require hospital treatment”.
Another motorcyclist, injured in a road traffic accident on Tuesday, February 27, was treated at the hospital’s Emergency Department and discharged.
The 65-year-old male motorcyclist sustained injuries “after colliding with two cars on North Shore Road in Devonshire near the junction with Barkers Hill”.
