Mazhye Burchall, the Robin Hood and Bermuda Under-20 footballer, was the ninth person to die on Bermuda's roads after a crash early on Saturday morning.

Mr Burchall, 20, apparently lost control of his motorcycle shortly before 4am near the Trimingham Hill roundabout in Paget. According to police, the vehicle struck a wall near the Railway Trail, about 100 yards west of the roundabout.

Mr Burchall was taken to hospital but pronounced dead.

Michael Dunkley, the shadow national security minister, gave a statement of condolence yesterday on behalf of the Opposition. Mr Dunkley said: “Life can be very tough at times and losing someone so young, with so much to offer and with a loving family and many friends, is as tough as it gets.

“This weekend, as the family and friends grieve, it is up to us as a community to comfort and support them during this very difficult period. As time moves, on there will be ample opportunity to seek answers and improve road safety.”

Police are appealing for any witnesses, or anyone who can assist with the last movements of the Mr Burchall, to contact Pc Wilkinson on 295-0011.
