Woman in bike crash is flown to US hospital

A young woman badly injured in a motorcycle crash has been flown to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland.

According to hospital staff, she remains in intensive care, and at last check yesterday was still in critical condition.

The 24-year-old, originally from the UK, had been in intensive care at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital after a crash at 3.55 am on Thursday, near the junction of Corkscrew Hill with Crow Lane, Pembroke.

Her employer in Bermuda said the injured woman's mother and brother came from the UK following the accident, and have continued with her to Johns Hopkins.

“She was taken out of Bermuda at 2am on Saturday. She's holding on.

“I'd like to thank King Edward VII Memorial Hospital on her family's behalf, particularly the staff in intensive care. I'd also like to thank the police liaison officer, US Customs and United Airlines, who have moved heaven and earth to do what needed to be done.”

Christopher Warburton, a friend, described her as “a wonderful girl.”

“She's always had a smile for everyone and she has a beautiful nature, which is why there are so many people wishing her all the best now.”
