A 48-year-old motorcycle rider has died after a crash in St George’s on Saturday evening.

The rider, identified by police as Arthur Wales, was fatally injured after a collision involving a truck on Cut Road in St George’s just before 7pm.

It is believed Mr Wales was heading west when he struck the other vehicle, which was making a turn near Old Military Road.

A police spokesman said: “Despite life-saving efforts by emergency medical technicians at the scene, which continued as he was rushed to hospital via ambulance, Mr Wales was later pronounced dead.

“A family liaison officer has been assigned to assist the deceased’s loved ones at this difficult time.

“The driver of the truck, said to be a 62-year-old St George’s man, was arrested on suspicion of impaired driving and subsequently released on police bail pending further inquiries.”

The spokesman said police are investigating the fatal collision — the eleventh of the year — and urged anyone with information to contact PC Terry Thompson at 717-2393 or tthompson@bps.bm.
