Man Dies After Road Traffic Accident

Shortly before 6:00 p.m. today, Sunday 14th November, 2021, police and other first responders attended a serious single vehicle road traffic collision at the junction of Middle Road and Lighthouse Road, Southampton.

Reports are a male motorcyclist was proceeding east on Middle road, when he collided with a wall, was thrown from the bike and landed in the waters at Jew’s Bay, adjacent to the Waterlot Inn.

The victim was reportedly pulled from the water by members of the public who began CPR until the arrival of EMTs who continued performing CPR, and transported him via ambulance to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, where he subsequently succumbed to his injuries.

Sadly, this marks the island’s 16th road fatality for this year.

The roadway was cordoned off and traffic diverted away from the area as the scene of the collision was forensically processed. The roads were re-opened around 8:30 p.m.

Anyone with information on the incident, is asked to call 295-0011.
