Man killed in Spice Hill Road crash — second road fatality in two days

A 45-year-old man has become the fifth road fatality of the year after a crash just before midnight on Friday.

A police spokesman said the rider struck a wall at the entrance to the WindReach outdoor centre for the disabled on Spice Hill Road, Warwick at about 11.50pm.

He added officers found the man unconscious with "serious and significant" head injuries.

The man was taken to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, but was pronounced dead at 12.20am.

The spokesman added that it was too early to determine the cause of the crash, and that the identity of the man would not be released until his next of kin are notified.

It represented the second roads death inside three days, after a 47-year-old man lost his life after a crash in Smith’s on Thursday night.

Lawrence Scott, the transport minister, later offered his condolences to the families of the two men.

Mr Scott said last night: “I was shocked to learn that two men have tragically lost their lives in separate fatal road collisions in the past 72 hours.

“I send my sincere condolences to both men’s families on behalf of the Government of Bermuda.”

Mr Scott said he could not discuss the circumstances of either incident.

But he added: “ I wish to urge road users in general to exercise more care, caution and courtesy.

We must all do our part to reduce the risk of any further loss of life on our roads.”
