A 35-year-old motorcyclist had to be treated in hospital yesterday after sustaining a leg injury.

The man, from Pembroke, was hurt after his motorcycle collided with a car in Devonshire. The crash happened at the junction of Middle Road and Watlington Road West at about 8.10am.

The victim was discharged from hospital yesterday.

It followed a crash on Sunday night, on Point Finger Road in Paget, that put another rider in hospital. The man had to be rescued by firefighters, after getting trapped underneath a car.

The crash, which occurred at 10.15pm, left him with injuries that were not said to be life-threatening.

The man’s injuries had initially appeared serious, but today police said he was discharged from hospital.

Point Finger Road was closed while investigators examined the scene, and police have appealed for witnesses.

Meanwhile, authorities called for witnesses after a motorcyclist hit a wall near Somerset Bridge in Sandys on Thursday night.

Police said the rider, a 54-year-old Warwick man, was treated in hospital and later arrested on suspicion of impaired driving. The rider was heading west on Middle Road, near the junction with Wreck Road, at about 9pm.
