Pair charged after Swing Bridge crash
Two men have been charged with impaired driving after a late-night crash.
An auxiliary cycle and car were travelling in opposite direction when they were in collision on the Swing Bridge, St George’s, just before midnight on Saturday.
A police spokesman said the 18-year-old cycle rider, who was heading towards St George’s, suffered foot, leg and suspected head injuries after his helmet came off.
He was taken by ambulance to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital for treatment, but his injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.
The 30-year-old driver of the car was unhurt.
The Swing Bridge was closed as police examined the scene. Police have appealed for witnesses.
