Police Identify 2021 Fifth Road Fatality Victim As 16-Year-Old Amber Bridges

The Bermuda Police Service can now confirm the death of 16-year-old Amber Bridges, Bermuda’s fifth road fatality for 2021.

Our thoughts and prayers remain with Amber’s family and friends at this tragic time.

It now appears that Amber was riding her 50cc scooter east along South Road in Southampton – and a van, driven by a 57-year-old Sandys parish man was travelling in the opposite direction – when the vehicles collided as they attempted to negotiate a series of bends nearest to Cross Bay Road (in the vicinity of the Fairmont Southampton golf course), around 12:15pm Sunday, 30th May.

Amber was seriously injured and despite lifesaving efforts by emergency medical technicians (EMTs) at the scene, which continued as she was rushed to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital via ambulance, the St. George’s teen was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

A BPS Family Liaison Officer is providing ongoing support to Amber’s loved ones.

The van driver was not hurt.

Constable Walter Jackson is continuing to investigate the circumstances of this fatal collision and any witnesses that have not already come forward are asked to call the Roads Policing Unit on 247-1788 or e-mail wjackson@bps.bm as soon as possible.

TNN family and staff would like to offer sincere condolences to the family and friends of Amber Bridges
