Teenager becomes fifth road fatality of 2019
A Warwick teenager became the fifth person to die on Bermuda's roads this weekend after an early-morning crash on Saturday.
Talundae Grant, 19, was found seriously injured and in an unresponsive state shortly before 2am, according to the Bermuda Police Service.
A police spokesman said: “Mr Grant, understood to be a Warwick resident, was seriously injured in a reported single-vehicle motorcycle crash, around 1.55am Saturday, July 27, on Malabar Road in Sandys parish, near Cochrane Road.
“Despite life-saving efforts at the scene by EMTs, which continued as he was rushed to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital via ambulance, sadly, Mr Grant was later pronounced dead.”
The spokesman added that a family liaison officer has been assigned to assist Mr Grant's loved ones in the wake of the fatal crash. Traffic diversions were in place for about three hours.
Zane DeSilva, the transport minister, said on Saturday: “Today, we mourn the passing of a young man, yet another tragic death on our roads.
“I extend my deepest and most sincere condolences to the family and friends during this difficult time.
“The Ministry of Tourism and Transport remains committed to road safety and urges all motorists to take care and caution when operating their motor vehicles and be considerate of other road users.”
