Warwick crash victim named
The Bermuda Police Service have confirmed the death of 59-year-old Richard Thomas, of Paget, and extend condolences to his family and friends.
Mr Thomas was seriously injured when the motorcycle he was riding collided with a car at about 5.55pm yesterday on Middle Road in Warwick, near the junction with Ord Road.
He was subsequently pronounced dead at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital at 8pm yesterday.
A family liaison officer has been assigned to Mr Thomas’s family to assist them at this difficult time and a full investigation into this fatal collision is continuing.
The investigating officer, Constable Walter Jackson, is urging any witnesses to this fatal collision that have not already come forward to contact him at the Roads Policing Unit on telephone number 247-1230 or via e-mail email@example.com.
The death of Mr Thomas marks the second road fatality for 2015. More significantly, it is the fourth on Bermuda’s roads in the past fortnight, and the fifth in the Christmas-new year period after the deaths of Shawn Williams, 23, on December 21; 19-year-old Stephen Edwards and Timothy Wright, 62, on December 31 and New Year’s Day respectively, and Jeremé Cumbermack last Monday — the latter a matter of a minute’s drive farther east on the same road as last night’s road death.
