A woman was rushed to hospital with serious head injuries today after a motorcycle crash.

A police spokesman said it was thought the 43-year-old rode over a newly installed speed bump and lost control of her bike.

The spokesman said: “She was thrown from the cycle and struck her head on the roadway.

“She was reportedly in and out of consciousness and was subsequently transported via ambulance to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, where at last check she was being attended to for a serious head injury.”

The woman was travelling east on Laffan Street in Pembroke at about 2.55pm when the crash happened.

A spokeswoman for the City of Hamilton said: "At this point in time the matter is currently under investigation by the Bermuda Police Service.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the accident victim."

The City also advised people to access Bull’s Head car park to use Woodlands Road because of traffic diversions around the accident scene.

Witnesses should call 211 or the main police number at 295-0011.
