17 year old male in hospital with serious neck injuries after RTA

Shortly after 10:00 p.m. on Wednesday 26th July 2023, Police and Emergency Services personnel were dispatched to Southside Road, St. George’s (west of Lower Gates Road Roundabout) to a report of a single vehicle road traffic collision involving a motorcycle.

On police arrival, the rider, a 17-year-old male, was found lying on the median, with an apparent head injury. EMTs attended to the victim, who was transported by ambulance to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital for further treatment.

Officers from the Forensic Support Unit and a Traffic Collision Investigator were called out to process the scene, with the section of roadway being closed to vehicular traffic for just over three hours.

The motorcycle was reported to have been travelling east, along Southside Road, when the rider lost control of the bike and struck the median causing him to fall to the ground.

Officers later attended K.E.M.H. and were informed the rider had sustained a serious neck injury.

Anyone who may be able to assist with the investigation into this serious road traffic collision is asked to contact Police Constable Lisa-Nichole Tucker on 295-0011 or, via email ltucker@bps.bm.
