Sadly, Bermuda recorded a third road traffic fatality for the year, as a result of a road traffic accident that injured a pedestrian back in April.

The Bermuda Police Service (BPS) confirmed the road traffic death of 64-year-old Marvin Johnson, who was seriously injured sometime between 9:45pm and 10pm on Friday, April 12.

Police say the accident occurred when a car travelling along Long Bay Lane in Sandys, made a left-hand turn onto Nursery Lane and collided with him.

“The Sandys Parish resident was admitted to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit, where he was later pronounced dead on Monday, June 3, 2024,” a spokesman said.

“A BPS Family Liaison Officer was then assigned to provide relevant support to Mr Johnson’s family, which is ongoing.

“This road fatality is currently being investigated by the Roads Policing Unit (RPU),” he added.

“The BPS thanks those persons who have already assisted with inquiries and renews the appeal for any witnesses that have not already come forward, or anyone with relevant information, to contact RPU Constable Kevin Medeiros by calling 717-2402 or e-mailing kmedeiros@bps.bm.

“Alternatively, members of the public are encouraged to share any information that they may have with a police officer they’re familiar with, or through the BPS online community reporting portal, https://portal.police.bm/.”

The spokesman also extended sincere condolences to his family and friends, on behalf of the BPS.
