Motorcycle & Truck Collide in Sandys Parish

Around 1:55pm yesterday, Thursday 20th October 2022, a reported two vehicle collision occurred at the junction of Malabar Road and Heydon Road in Sandys parish.

It appears that a motorcyclist was travelling east along Malabar Road and a West End Development Corporation truck was being driven in the opposite direction when the vehicles collided as the truck driver, said to be a 47-year-old Pembroke man, attempted to make a right turn onto Heydon Road.

The rider, said to be a 33-year-old St. George’s man, apparently sustained injuries to his legs and was initially treated at the crash site by EMTs.

He was then transported by ambulance to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, conscious and breathing, for further treatment.

The truck driver was not hurt.

Traffic diversions were in effect for approximately three hours while the scene was processed and motorists in the area experienced some delays as a result.
