Around 1pm Monday, 29th January 2024, uniformed police officers responded to a suspected hit and run road traffic collision, involving a 78-year-old female pedestrian, at the junction of North Shore Road and Callen Glen Rise in Hamilton parish.

It appears that the Hamilton parish resident was crossing North Shore Road from the waterside, heading towards Callen Glen Rise, when she was apparently struck by a motorcyclist travelling east. It is understood that the rider continued east along North Shore Road.

On police arrival, the 78-year-old woman was found lying in the grass near the westbound lane, being assisted by members of the public. She was then transported to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital via ambulance for treatment of non-life threatening injuries and later discharged.

Inquiries by the Bermuda Police Service (BPS) continue regarding the circumstances of this suspected hit and run road traffic collision. So far, no description of the motorcycle or rider believed to have been involved, has come to light.

Any witnesses, or persons with relevant information, particularly anyone who may have seen a motorcyclist travelling east at speed along North Shore Road, Hamilton parish between Francis Patton Primary School and Blue Hole Hill around 1pm Monday, 29th January 2024, are encouraged to contact Constable 2572 Tyler Nelmes on 211, e-mail tnelmes@bps.bm or speak with a police officer they know.
