Police name road fatality

A visitor from the United States who died in a crash last week was identified by police as Jamie Kopp.

It marked the sixth fatal traffic accident of 2019. Ms Kopp, 49, was riding with her husband on a separate rental scooter in Hamilton Parish on Thursday, at about 1.45pm, when her vehicle collided with a water truck.

The two were headed west on North Shore Road near the junction with Cottage Hill Road. The truck was travelling in the opposite direction.

Ms Kopp succumbed to serious injuries, despite life-saving efforts at the scene and on the ambulance to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital.

She was pronounced dead at the hospital. A police spokesman said her husband and the driver of the truck were not injured.

A family liaison officer was assigned to help Ms Kopp's family. An investigation continues.

Witnesses should call police on 295-0011 or cyoung@bps.bm
