The young woman who sustained a serious head injury in a two-vehicle collision earlier this week has been airlifted overseas for medical treatment.

The 20-year-old motorcyclist was in a collision with a truck on Tuesday, at the junction of Middle Road and Verdmont Road in Smith’s around 6:25pm.

She was admitted to the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit.

A police spokesman indicated that she was flown abroad in an air ambulance.

Meanwhile, the appeal for witnesses to contact police continues.

Anyone with information that may assist with the investigation is urged to contact Constable David Ward on 295-0011, or email as soon as possible.
