Two drivers in hospital after New Year’s accidents

A 41-year-old Sandys woman involved in a New Year’s Day crash was later arrested on suspicion of driving while impaired.

The accident occurred around 4.30am on Middle Road in Southampton, near the junction with Granaway Heights Road.

The woman was rushed to King Edward VII Memorial via ambulance following the accident, and subsequently arrested.

A court appearance is expected in due course.

Meanwhile, an 18-year-old Sandys man involved in an unrelated accident on New Year’s Day, was last night listed in stable condition.

The teenager was towing a pillion passenger around 12.20am when he struck a utility pole on Sound View Road near the junction with Saltsea Lane in Sandys.

Both the man and his passenger were taken to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital via ambulance. The rider was detained on a general ward; his 15-year-old passenger was treated and released.

Inquiries into both accidents are continuing.

Said a Police spokesman: “The Bermuda Police Service would like to thank the public for their cooperation over the New Year’s holiday period as there were no significant incidents of antisocial behaviour reported.

“Police arrested four people for outstanding warrants, and another five people were arrested on suspicion of impaired driving between 7am Monday and 7am Wednesday. Liquor license checks were also conducted throughout the Island.”
