Tributes to schoolgirl who died in road crash
Friends and family of a teenage girl killed in a crash last week gathered near the scene of the incident and wore pink as a tribute at the weekend.
A procession of cars decked with pink ribbons drove past the scene where Amber Bridges, who was 16, died last Sunday.
Many stopped to drop off flowers, balloons and tributes at the roadside memorial.
Relatives including the victim’s mother, Heidi Bridges, embraced as they watched and close to 100 teenagers joined the tribute on Saturday.
Marshals monitored traffic around the ceremony, which was marked with traffic cones.
Fire personnel waved pink and sounded a siren from a Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service that slowed down as it passed by.
Ms Bridges died after her motorcycle was in collision with a van on May 30.
The crash happened on South Road, close to the Fairmont Southampton.
Ms Bridges’s devotion to riding was highlighted by a horse rider who joined the memorial procession with pink ribbons.
The teenager, a keen horse rider from St George’s, was the fifth roads death of the year.
