Man injured in three-vehicle collision

A man was rushed to hospital with serious head injuries after being involved in a three-vehicle collision last night.

A police spokesman said the victim was trapped under a car and had to be freed by firefighters.

The injured man was taken by ambulance to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital.

The collision happened on North Shore Road, Devonshire at about 5.30pm.

Witnesses said the man was travelling west on a motorcycle near the Palmetto Road roundabout when he struck two cars travelling east.

The driver of the second car struck said: “I saw the bike coming.

“He wasn't keeping to his own lane. I had to try to avoid him.

“He hit the car in front of me and then he hit my car.”

A police spokesman said traffic was being diverted around the Barkers Hill roundabout because of the collision.

He added: “Initial information suggests that two cars and a motorcycle are involved and that the motorcyclist has sustained serious injuries.

“The scene will be processed by the relevant police personnel and a condition update will be provided in due course.”
