UK woman becomes Bermuda's 13th road fatality of 2010

Bermuda's roads claimed their 13th victim of the year yesterday, when a young woman who was badly hurt in a crash last week succumbed to her injuries.

Leaha Lanfear, a 24-year-old from the UK, was involved in an accident around 3.55am on Thursday near the junction of Corkscrew Hill and Crow Lane in Pembroke.

Ms Lanfear, who worked at the Renaissance beauty salon in Hamilton, was flown to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore for treatment.

She received treatment in the intensive care unit, but died of her injuries yesterday.

A police spokesman announced her death late last night, saying: “The Bermuda Police Service extends condolences to the family and friends of Ms Lanfear. Inquiries into this incident are ongoing.

“Police are appealing for any witnesses to this collision or anyone with any information to contact Pc Sean Hassell on 295-0011.”
