A 33-year-ol St George’s man was rushed to the hospital’s Emergency Department with leg injuries, following a two vehicle accident yesterday.
Police say the accident occurred around 1:55pm (Oct 20) at the junction of Malabar Road and Heydon Road in Sandys Parish.
“It appears that a motorcyclist was travelling east along Malabar Road and a West End Development Corporation truck was being driven in the opposite direction when the vehicles collided as the truck driver, said to be a 47-year-old Pembroke man, attempted to make a right turn onto Heydon Road,” a spokesman said.
The rider sustained injuries to his legs and was initially treated at the crash site by EMTs.
“He was then transported by ambulance to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, conscious and breathing, for further treatment.
“The truck driver was not hurt.
“Traffic diversions were in effect for approximately three hours while the scene was processed and motorists in the area experienced some delays as a result.
“Inquiries continue and any witnesses are encouraged to call 211 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.”
