No One Hurt in Single Vehicle Van Crash on North Shore Road

It has now been confirmed that no one was injured in a single vehicle van crash that occurred around 4pm Tuesday, March 12th on North Shore Road in Hamilton parish near the junction with Abbot’s Cliff Drive.

Apparently the crash involved a 40 year old male driver – said to be a Paget resident – and his two children (passengers).

It appears that the van was being driven east along North Shore Road when it struck a utility pole and overturned in the vicinity of Francis Patton Primary School. While none of the van’s occupants were hurt, the vehicle and the utility pole were damaged.

Traffic diversions were in effect for several hours while technicians from BELCO and telecommunications companies attended the scene to repair the damaged utility pole and downed wires. Bermuda Fire & Rescue Service personnel also assisted at the scene.

A single lane was re-opened around 1:15am Wednesday, with the affected section of road finally reopened fully around 2am. The patience and co-operation of the motoring public as well as area residents while the repair work was carried out was greatly appreciated.

Inquiries continue and any witnesses that have not already come forward are asked to call Constable Simon Fraser on 295-0011.
