Police are today appealing for witnesses to a road traffic accident that left a 26-year-old female guest worker with a serious leg injury, when her motorcycle was struck by a car.

The accident occurred around 11:20pm on Saturday night (Oct 16) near the junction of North Shore Road and Studio Lane in Hamilton Parish, just east of Bethel AME Church.

A spokesman said: “Early indications are the motorcycle rider, a 26-year-old female guest worker, was struck by the car which was traveling in an easterly direction along North Shore Road.

“She sustained a serious leg injury and was attended to by a physician who resides nearby, until the arrival of EMTs, who transported her via ambulance to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, where at last check, she was being attended to for her injuries, which were described as non-life threatening.

“The motorcar driver, a 26-year-old male and his 25-year-old female companion were unhurt in the collision, which left the victim’s motorbike a write-off and the car, with extensive front end damage.

“The motorcar driver was arrested on suspicion of driving whilst impaired.

“The roadway was cordoned off and traffic diverted onto the nearby railway trail, as the collision scene was forensically processed.

“Anyone with information on this morning’s serious RTC in Hamilton Parish is asked to contact Police Constable 2557 Steede, on 247-1704 or via email, ahsteede@bps.bm.”
