Travellers, including a national sports team headed for the United States, had to walk to the airport yesterday after an early morning collision on the Causeway brought traffic to a standstill.

A female driver was later arrested on suspicion of impaired driving.

A bystander said: “People heading to the airport for several morning flights, including the national volleyball team, were forced to get out and walk across the Causeway as no traffic was getting through.”

The woman added that the chaos started after two vehicles collided on the narrow crossing at about 6.30am.

She said traffic was backed up as far as Crawl in Hamilton Parish for more than an hour before the road reopened.

She added: “They really need a better plan when this happens, because as much as everyone was concerned about the accident victims, it was a massive inconvenience to locals and tourists trying to make sure they caught their flights.

“They would have to pay for the expense of rebooking, not Bermuda.”

A police spokesman said the crash occurred when a car driven west by a female driver collided with a truck headed in the opposite direction.

There were no injuries but both vehicles were damaged in the collision.
