Not such a great day in terms of road traffic accidents on Wednesday (Apr 20) in St David’s where police and first responders dashed to the scene of two separate accidents, including one with a car overboard.

A spokesman for the Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service (BFRS) said officers responded to a report of a single-vehicle accident near Dolly’s Bay at 11:15am yesterday.

“On arrival to the road traffic collision, fire crews found one car which had hit a wall,” he said.

“The driver of the car did not have any injuries.”

While still at the scene, firefighters received calls about another accident involving a car that went overboard near the former Severn Bridge.

“Crews immediately left the scene of the first collision and responded to the vehicle in the water.

“When the firefighters reached the area of the second incident, they found that both of the passengers in the car had both been able to safely escape the vehicle,” the spokesman said.

“Both sustained non life threatening injuries and were treated at the scene by Fire Service EMT’s then transported to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital by ambulance.”

Police later confirmed that there were two police officers in the car that went overboard.

A police spokesman added: “Thankfully, neither officer was seriously hurt.

“The vehicle was extensively damaged.

“Traffic was diverted away from the area while the scene was processed by Traffic Collision Investigators.”

Anyone with information is urged to call police at 211 or 295-0011.
