Firefighters rescue man from under bus after crash

Crash: The scene of a three-vehicle crash tonight (Photograph supplied)

A motorcyclist was last night rescued by firefighters after he was trapped under a bus in the wake of a three-vehicle crash.

The 25-year-old man was rushed to the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital with leg injuries after a fire crew used special lifting bags to raise the bus.

The drama happened after a crash that involved the bus, a car and the motorbike.

The incident happened about 6.25pm on Middle Road, near Fairhaven Road in Sandys.

A fire service spokesman said: “The cause of the road traffic collision is under investigation by the Bermuda Police Service.”

A police spokesman said the crash appeared to have happened after the motorcyclist, who was travelling east, attempted to overtake other vehicles, lost control and was in collision with a car travelling in the opposite direction.

He added that the motorcyclist was thrown into the path of the path of the bus, which was also heading east.

The police spokesman said the extent of the man’s injuries had not been established.

The bus driver and car driver were unhurt.

The spokesman added there would be traffic delays in the area as accident investigators examined the scene.

Police have appealed for witnesses.
