Police are investigating four weekend accidents landed several motorists in the hospital’s Emergency Department this past weekend between Friday night and just after midnight on Sunday; including a female riding a 50cc scooter, who was injured.
Emergency responders were called out to the scent of another serious collision on Cobb’s Hill in Warwick, near the junction with the Railway Trail, around 9:30pm on Saturday (October 12).
A spokesman said the accident involved two men on a motorcycle, who were travelling along the Railway Trail. The female rider was travelling along Cobb’s Hill Road when the collision occurred.
“All three were injured and transported to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital via ambulance for treatment,” he said.
Traffic diversions remained in effect for approximately three hours while the scene was processed.
A mere 30 minutes later, emergency responders were called out again, around 10pm, to the scene of a single vehicle accident on Harrington Sound Road in Hamilton Parish, near the junction with Paynter’s Road.
The motorcyclist involved, “said to be a 48-year-old Southampton man, struck a wall while attempting to negotiate a bend in the road”.
“He was transported to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital via ambulance, treated for his injuries and later discharged,” the spokesman said.
Around 6pm on Friday (Octo 11), police responded to another collision on Par-La-Ville Road in the City of Hamilton, where a male motorcyclist “travelling behind a car, struck the car as the car driver attempted to turn into a garage”.
The rider, “said to be a 42-year-old Pembroke man”, was rushed to hospital via ambulance “for treatment of facial injuries that were apparently not life threatening”.
“The car driver, said to be a 55-year-old St George’s woman, was not hurt.”
“However, both vehicles were damaged and traffic was diverted while the scene was processed.
Around 12:10am on Sunday (October 13), emergency responders were sent to the scene of another serious road traffic accident on Middle Road in Southampton; near Hawthorn Lane.
Police say a male motorcyclist and another male riding a 50cc scooter were travelling in opposite directions in the vicinity of the Wok Express, when the accident occurred.
The motorcyclist, “believed to be a 25-year-old Paget man, was transported via ambulance “for treatment of an apparently serious but non-life threatening leg injury”.
“It is believed that the male 50cc scooter rider was not seriously hurt. Both vehicles involved were damaged. The scene was processed and inquiries continue,” he added.
Witnesses to any of these accidents are urged to contact police on 295-0011.
