Police are investigating a road traffic accident involving one of their police cycle riders on driver training and another male motorcyclist, that landed them both in hospital with leg injuries.

A spokesman said the accident occurred shortly after 2:30pm on Middle Road in Warwick, opposite Warwick lanes on Wednesday (March 3).

The male motorcyclist was travelling east along Middle Road, when; “upon hearing the sirens from police cycles on driver training, headed in the same direction, the motorcyclist, who was attempting to make a right turn into the Warwick Esso Gas Station, instead pulled his vehicle to the left going towards a bus layby”.

“One of the police bikes collided with the motorcyclist resulting in both riders suffering leg injuries, which were not considered serious.

“Both the motorcyclist and the police officer received treatment for their injuries at King Edward VII hospital and were discharged.

“Both bikes were also damaged,” the spokesman added.
“As a result of the collision, a Traffic Collision Investigator and an officer from the Forensics Science Unit attended and processed the scene.
“Enquiries are ongoing.”
