RBR soldier and civilian injured after two motorbikes in collision in West End

A Royal Bermuda Regiment soldier and a civilian suffered serious facial injuries after their motorbikes were in collision in the West End last night.

Police said a man leaving the RBR Coast Guard headquarters in Sandys and a man on a motorcycle travelling west were involved in the crash.

The injured, aged 27 and 54, were rushed to the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital for treatment.

A spokesman for the RBR said: “We are aware that one of our soldiers was injured as he left work at the RBR Coast Guard.

“As I’m sure the public will appreciate, our focus now is entirely on support to the injured soldier and his loved ones and no further comment will be made at this stage.”

The spokesman added: “The RBR has, of course, offered its full co-operation to the Bermuda Police Service.”

The road was blocked in both directions after the crash, which happened about 7pm, and was closed for more than two hours..

Police said road users should remain patient or avoid the area until the police examination of the crash scene had ended.

The road was reported to be reopened just after 9.30pm.
