Pedestrian injured in Front Street collision

Police reported a pedestrian suffered a fractured pelvis in a collision with a car early on Saturday morning.

A 47-year-old pedestrian today remains in hospital being treated for a broken pelvis after being pinned beneath a car in a collision early on Saturday morning.

A Bermuda Police Service spokesman said the man was found to be unresponsive with one leg trapped under the private car shortly after 2am. The incident occurred on Front Street opposite Number Six Shed.

The spokesman said initial enquiries suggest a motor car was being driven in a westerly direction along Front Street by a 27-year-old male, when the victim stepped off the sidewalk into the path of the vehicle and was struck.

The driver of the vehicle was arrested on suspicion of driving while impaired.

Officers at the scene reported that the man had sustained multiple injuries, including a fractured pelvis, facial injuries and road rash.

He was attended to by emergency medical technicians and taken via ambulance to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call 211 or the main police number, 295-0011.
