Around 1:30pm today, Police attended a reported serious road traffic collision resulting in injury on North Shore Road in Devonshire near the junction with Barkers Hill. It appears that the victim, a 20 year old Warwick woman, was traveling down Barkers Hill going towards the round-a-bout on North Shore when a collision took place between a bus and the motorcycle she was riding. The 20 year old suffered head injuries and was rushed to KEMH via ambulance for treatment; however, her injuries do not appear to be life threatening. Inquiries into this incident are underway. Police are appealing for any witnesses to this incident to contact PC James Celestine on 295-0011.

Approximately 100 boys and girls successfully completed the local programme, with eleven young men and women completing a 3 week overseas Outward Bound Camp in Wales this year. The awards ceremony was well attended by both young people who participated in the Outward Bound Programme and their families.

The Bermuda Police Service is proud to be associated with the Outward Bound Programme and has played a major role in its development locally since 1970. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Government and the private sector for their continued support of Outward Bound, and to congratulate the instructors, participants and their families for actively participating in a positive activity for Bermuda’s youth.
