Police: updates on three crashes
Two tourists were injured yesterday after a crash at the West End, police reported.
A police spokesman said the visitors had been headed west on rental bikes along Middle Road, Sandys, near the junction with George’s Bay Road, when a car came out of a driveway.
One 50cc auxiliary cycle struck the car, while the other rider fell attempting to stop.
A 50-year-old visiting American woman was hurt and transported to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital via ambulance for treatment.
As of this morning she was recovering in stable condition on a general ward.
Her pillion passenger, a 12-year-old visiting American, was not injured and the rider of the other rental cycle, a 72-year-old visiting American man, sustained relatively minor injuries that did not require hospital treatment.
The three are visiting from Colorado and there were no other injuries reported. All three vehicles involved were damaged.
Inquiries continue and any witnesses are asked to contact the main police telephone number 295-0011.
