Eleventh road fatality of the year
A 38-year-old woman died after her motorcycle collided with a car in Southampton yesterday.
A Bermuda Police Service spokesman said Kerry Petty was riding the motorcycle when she was involved in the crash on Middle Road, in the area of Five Star Island, shortly before 5.50am.
She was rushed to hospital where she was later pronounced dead.
“A family liaison officer has been assigned to assist Ms Petty’s family at this difficult time,” the spokesman said.
The car driver, a 30-year-old Warwick woman, was released on police bail pending further inquiries after initially being arrested on suspicion of impaired driving.
Traffic was diverted away from the area for about three hours while the scene was processed.
It marks the eleventh road fatality of 2017.
Witnesses should telephone the Roads Policing Unit on 247-1788. Police say they are particularly keen to speak with a man who apparently witnessed the incident and stopped at the scene.
