A SUV driver was arrested for disqualified driving, issued with relevant traffic tickets and has a Magistrates’ Court appearance scheduled in the near future, after leading police officers on a pursuit Wednesday morning (29th November 2023).
Minutes before 9am Wednesday, the driver of a silver Honda CR-V turned from Crow Lane on to Lane Hill, Pembroke in contravention of the posted traffic sign.
At the time, Bermuda Police Service (BPS) officers were conducting a traffic initiative along Lane Hill.
When signalled to stop by a BPS officer, the SUV driver, understood to be a 39-year-old Devonshire man, slowed down but then accelerated away.
A pursuit ensued, with police vehicles following the SUV driver through parts of Devonshire, Pembroke and the City of Hamilton. The man eventually stopped in a driveway off Serpentine Road, Pembroke, where he was arrested without further incident.
The individual involved has since been released on police bail.
A video currently circulating on social media shows some of Wednesday morning’s pursuit.
The vehicle involved was impounded and later released to the registered owner.
