It appears that a motorcycle was traveling south on Trimingham Hill when the rider, a 50 year old Southampton man, lost control and collided with a telephone pole. As a result, the motorcycle sustained front end damage. The Southampton man suffered a cut above his left eye and abrasions to his left knee. He was subsequently arrested for suspicion of impaired driving.

Around 2:35pm on Wednesday, Police attended a reported road traffic collision resulting in injury on Ord Road in Warwick involving a car and an auxiliary cycle. It appears that the car was traveling north out of the Paget Primary School exit and the auxiliary cycle was traveling west on Ord Road when the collision occurred. As a result, the car’s front and right side were damaged, while the auxiliary cycle was damaged in multiple areas. The driver of the car, a 37 year old Devonshire man, sustained minor injuries and the rider of the auxiliary cycle, a 16 year old Paget boy, sustained injuries to his head requiring 6 stitches and abrasions to his right leg.
