A Sri Lankan man has died after a two-car collision on North Shore Road on Wednesday afternoon.

A police spokesman said that Tilhan Chitrananda, 30, succumbed to his injuries after he was taken to hospital in an unresponsive state.

His death is the 13th on Bermuda’s roads this year.

The spokesman said: “Mr Chitrananda was the driver of one of the motor cars involved in a two-vehicle collision on the North Shore Road near the junction with Tamarisk Hill, Smith’s at approximately 4.10pm.

“He became pinned under his vehicle after it flipped on its side.

“Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service personnel assisted with the effort to extricate Mr Chitrananda, who was transported via ambulance to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.”

The spokesman added that the police extended its condolences to Mr Chitrananda’s friends and family. A family liaison officer has been appointed to assist his family.

A spokeswoman for the Technological Leadership Forum said Mr Chitrananda was a 2011 TLF graduate who mentored and volunteered with the programme.

She said: “He will be sorely missed. We all loved him. We are a family, supporting each other in our journeys both professionally and personally.

“Tilhan [Tilly] was exceptionally talented, always learning and determined for success. He will be cherished in our memories for ever – our condolences to his family and friends.”
