Fatal crash on North Shore Road

A man has died after a collision in Hamilton Parish last night, and a second man has been arrested.

A police spokesman said the crash, involving two motorcycles and a car, happened after 6.30pm at the junction of North Shore Road and Panorama Drive.

He said: “It appears that two males on separate motorcycles were travelling in opposite directions on North Shore Road when the rider who was travelling west attempted overtaking a car and in the process he hit the car and subsequently collided with a motorcyclist travelling in an easterly direction.”

The spokesman confirmed just after 9.15pm that one of the riders, a 39-year-old man, had died as a result of his injuries.

The other, a 38-year-old man, was taken to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

He was later arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Anyone who may have seen the collision is urged to call police at 295-0011.
