Female Visitor Hurt in Rental Scooter Collision on North Shore Road

Around 11:17am Thursday, 8th June 2023, Bermuda Fire & Rescue Service (BFRS) personnel came across what appears to be a single vehicle collision on North Shore Road near the junction with Jennings Road, Smith’s, involving a tourist on a rental cycle.

The Bermuda Police Service responded to the collision scene shortly after BFRS personnel encountered the incident.

While the exact circumstances remain unclear at this time, it was reported that the injured party, a female tourist and her husband were traveling in the eastbound lane on separate rental cycles, when the woman lost control of her vehicle and as a result, she went over an embankment.

The woman was taken to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital via ambulance, where she is being treated for multiple injuries.

Traffic headed east was diverted over Jennings Road, while traffic headed west was allowed to continue through in the westbound lane, while the scene was processed.

Normal traffic flow has since resumed in the area.

Anyone who may have witnessed this collision is asked to contact PC Gregory White on 211 or gwhite@bps.bm.

All incidents are under investigation. Police are appealing to members of the public who have witnessed these incidents or may have information pertaining to them to contact their respective Police Station, Police Headquarters at 295-0011 or the confidential Crimestoppers Hotline on 1 (800) 623-8477.
