Police Identify Ninth Road Traffic Fatality Victim

The Bermuda Police Service (BPS) can now confirm the death of 17-year-old Michael Spence-Durrant, Bermuda’s ninth road fatality of 2023, and extends sincere condolences to his family and friends.

It is now believed that Mr. Spence-Durrant was seriously hurt when the motorcycle he was riding out of Dockyard along Malabar Road, Sandys parish struck a concrete bench in a grassy area near the junction with Heydon Road, around 3:37am Tuesday, 20th June 2023.

He was conveyed to Port Royal Fire Station in a private vehicle for medical treatment, before being rushed to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital via ambulance.

However, despite all lifesaving efforts the teen, understood to have been a Warwick resident, was pronounced dead later Tuesday morning.

A BPS Family Liaison Officer continues to provide relevant support to Mr. Spence-Durrant’s family.

The appeal continues for any witnesses, or anyone with information about the circumstances, to contact Constable Victor Fishington of the Roads Policing Unit on 247-1788 or e-mail vfishington@bps.bm.
