Motorcyclist Admitted Into ICU After Collision With Car Sunday Evening

Around 7:40pm Sunday, 2nd October 2022, a reported collision involving a car and a motorcycle occurred at the junction of Montpelier Road and Happy Valley Road in Devonshire.

It appears that a motorcyclist was travelling north along Montpelier Road and a car was being driven in the opposite direction along Montpelier Road when the car driver, said to be a 64-year-old Devonshire man, attempted to turn right on to Happy Valley Road.

As a result the vehicles collided at the junction and the rider, said to be a 38-year-old Sandys parish man, was seriously injured.

He was rushed to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital via ambulance and admitted into the Intensive Care Unit.

The car driver was not hurt. However his front seat passenger, said to be a 60-year-old Devonshire woman, apparently sustained cuts to her face.

Traffic was diverted for approximately three hours while the scene was processed.
