Rider Arrested After Two Motorcycle Devonshire Collision Sunday

A collision involving two male motorcyclists along North Shore Road, Devonshire, near Loyal Hill Road around 7:10pm Sunday 19th May 2024, has led to the arrest of one of the men, said to be a 49-year-old Smith’s parish resident.

It now appears that both motorcyclists were travelling in the same direction along North Shore Road when the rider in front, understood to be a 71-year-old Devonshire man, was struck from behind by the 49-year-old rider, as the older man attempted to turn on to the Railway Trail, heading toward North Ridge Crescent.

Both men were transported to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital by ambulance and treated for their injuries, which are not believed to be as serious as originally thought.

The 49-year-old man was later discharged from hospital and taken into police custody, on suspicion of impaired driving.

Traffic in the area was diverted for approximately two hours, while the collision site was processed.

Inquiries continue and any witnesses that have not already come forward are now encouraged to contact Constable Kevin Medeiros by calling 211 or e-mailingkmedeiros@bps.bm.
