Police are investigating multiple road traffic accidents in Southampton, Devonshire and Flatts that left at least seven people injured, including three pedestrians — one of them a senior citizen.
Initial reports indicate that the 82-year-old man was attempting to cross the road when he was hit by a 19-year-old man travelling west on a motorcycle.
The accident occurred around 5:47pm on Tuesday (May 4) on South Road near the junction with Lighthouse Road.
“Both parties were conveyed via ambulance to KEMH for treatment to their injuries,” a spokesman said.
“The motorcycle rider is believed to have suffered a serious leg injury, while the pedestrian is believed to have suffered serious head injuries.
Another two pedestrians were injured in another collision involving a motorcycle and a car outside the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum & Zoo in Hamilton Parish.
Police say that accident occurred around 5:30pm on Tuesday.
The motorcyclist was seriously injured and required CPR at the scene, before rushed to the hospital’s Emergency Department via ambulance.
“Both pedestrians, a man and a woman, were also hurt – but they were said to be conscious and breathing. Their injuries are believed to be less serious,” the spokesman said.
Traffic travelling east was diverted along Harrington Sound Road while the scene was processed.
In another collision that occurred around 6pm yesterday, two motorcyclists – a male and a female collided on South Road near Devonshire Bay Road.
Both riders were injured and left the scene via ambulance.
“At this time the female rider’s injuries may be more serious than the male rider’s injuries,” the spokesman said.
Updates will be provided when more information becomes available, he added.
Any witnesses are urged to call police on 211.
