Tue, 2023-06-06

At 3:20pm Tuesday, June 6th, 2023, police and emergency medical personnel were dispatched to a reported two motorcycle collision on Mullet Bay Road, St. George’s, just past the Swing Bridge, before the junction with Stokes Point Road.

Upon arrival they found two males and a female lying in the roadway. One male, a 69-year-old visitor from the United States was unresponsive and had suffered a serious head injury. His 66-year-old wife and pillion passenger, also visiting from the U.S., sustained minor bruises about the body. She was conscious and alert. The other male, a 50-year-old Bermudian national, sustained injuries to his neck and left hand. He too was conscious and alert.

The injured parties were attended to at the scene by EMTs before being transported by ambulance to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, for further treatment for their injuries.

At last check the American man was warded in the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit. His injuries are now deemed to be life threatening. His wife remains in the hospital’s Emergency Department as does the Bermudian male. Their injuries are not considered life threatening.

Details of the collision are limited at this time, however, it is understood both men were traveling in opposite directions along Mullet Bay Road when they collided.

The collision resulted in the roadway being closed for approximately one hour, then traffic being restricted to one lane for a further three hours, while the scene was forensically processed.

The Bermuda Police Service (BPS), wishes to thank the public for their patience and cooperation during this exercise.

The BPS is aware of a WhatsApp post shared several times, which indicates the collision was as a result of a police chase involving one of the motorcycle riders.

We wish to dispel this unfounded rumour as there was no police chase in progress when the collision occurred.

An investigation into this incident has now commenced and anyone with information is asked to contact PC Glynn Kellman on 717-2204 or via e-mail, gkellman@bps.bm. You may also share the information using the BPS community portal at https://portal.police.bm.
