A 13-year-old schoolgirl sustained a leg injury with minor abrasions to her left knee, when she was struck by an oncoming car, while walking along North Shore Road on Wednesday (Jan 26).

A police spokeswoman said the accident occurred around 8am and that young teen was taken to King Edward VII Hospital for medical attention.

“Information received indicates westbound traffic had come to a standstill and the pedestrian, who was walking east along North Shore Road in between stationary traffic, suddenly ran across the road into the path of the motor car which was traveling in an easterly direction,” she added.

“The motorcar involved was left with minor damage to the front end.

“The incident resulted in traffic delays for commuters traveling west on the north Shore Road.

“However normal traffic flow was restored after approximately thirty minutes.”

Anyone with information on this matter, is urged to call 211, or, the main police number, 295-0011.

Police and first responders also attended a single vehicle accident on Middle Road near the junction with Overplus Lane in Sandys.

The accident occurred just before midnight on Wednesday (Jan 26).

“Initial reports suggest the 22-year-old male driver was travelling west, when he lost control of his private motorcar and struck a utility pole,” the spokeswoman said.

“The 22-year-old female passenger had to be extracted from the vehicle by Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service.

“Both occupants were conveyed to KEMH for treatment of non-life threatening injuries and were later discharged.”
