A 39-year-old man tragically lost his life as a result of a road traffic accident that occurred last night on North Shore Road at the junction of Panorama Drive in Hamilton Parish.

Police Media Manager Dwayne Caines said the accident occurred at 6:41pm

““It appears that two males on separate motorcycles were traveling in opposite directions on North Shore Road when the rider who was traveling west attempted overtaking a car and in the process he hit the car and subsequently collided with a motorcyclist traveling in an easterly direction.


“Both males were taken to the hospital with one male sustaining non life threatening injuries. Currently, a 39-year-old man is in critical condition and the other rider, a 39-year-old male, was arrested for suspicion of driving whilst impaired,” he added.

Police are appealing for anyone who may have seen the collision to contact police on 2950011.

No further information will be given until the next of kin has been notified.
