A man has suffered life-threatening injuries after he crashed into a road sign late on Saturday night.

A police spokesman said that officers responded to reports of a serious single-vehicle traffic collision on Crow Lane in Pembroke shortly before 11.30pm.

The spokesman said: “It is understood a male motorcyclist was headed in an easterly direction along Crow Lane when upon reaching the junction with Corkscrew Hill, he lost control of the bike, collided with a road-sign post and came off the bike.

“Upon arrival officers found the male breathing but unresponsive.

“EMTs arrived shortly after and attended to the motorcyclist before he was transported via ambulance to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, where he is currently warded in the Intensive Care Unit, having sustained life-threatening injuries in the collision.

The road was temporarily closed as officers processed the scene, but has since been reopened.

Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call police at 211 or the main police number, 295-0011.
