Collins Smith, 52, has been named as the motorcyclist killed after crashing on Blackwatch Pass, Pembroke, on Friday.

Mr Collins was travelling south when he apparently lost control of his bike and hit the side of the road at about 6.30pm, according to the Bermuda Police Service.

He was taken to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

It marks the tenth road death of 2017.

Deputy Premier Walter Roban said on Saturday: “Last evening, Bermuda recorded another road fatality.

“Earlier today I reached out to family members of the gentleman who died and expressed the condolences of the Premier and the entire Cabinet. Our prayers and thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time.

“As a government and as a community we must work together to increase safety and reduce the number of deaths and serious injuries on Bermuda’s roads.”

Witnesses or anyone with information about the movements of Mr Smith before the accident should call PC Oswin Pereira on 717-2360.
