Damage Only Collision Involving DPT Bus, Utility Pole & Truck

Around 2:20pm Wednesday, 13th March 2024, a reported collision occurred on Middle Road in Paget, near the junction with Chapel Road.

It appears that a Department of Public Transportation (DPT) bus was being driven in the westbound lane of Middle Road, when an unknown vehicle being driven in the opposite direction caused the bus driver to take evasive action and collide with a utility pole.

Part of the utility pole then struck a truck, which was being driven behind the DPT bus.

The DPT bus, utility pole and truck were damaged.

However, there were no reported injuries.

Traffic was diverted from Middle Road, Paget at the junctions of Manse Road and Chapel Road while BELCO, Digicel and One Communications personnel were at the scene regarding the damaged utility pole.

Normal traffic flow resumed in the area around 4:45pm Wednesday.

Inquiries continue and any witnesses are encouraged to call Constable Conor Perkin on 211 or e-mailcperkin@bps.bm.
