A Corporation of Hamilton worker was taken to hospital this morning after a collision on Victoria Street.

A statement from the Bermuda Police Service said that at about 7.50am, police and first responders were dispatched to the scene, where a car heading south along Victoria Street in the area of Union Street struck the man.

The worker was trying to guide a garbage truck back on to the main road at the time.

He was taken to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital for treatment of his injuries.

Police said this afternoon that the employee was admitted and remained in stable condition.

“It is understood that he will undergo further medical observations, but has no broken bones and is able to speak,” the BPS added.

Police said the woman driver of the car was not reported to be injured.

Traffic was diverted on King Street and Union Street while police processed the scene but normal traffic flow resumed at about 10am.

Any witnesses are asked to call 211.
