Rider and passenger injured in Middle Road collision

A teenage motorcycle passenger had to undergo surgery on a serious leg injury following a road traffic accident in the early hours of yesterday.

The smash happened at about 4am on Middle Road in Paget near the junction with Bostock Hill West when a bike carrying two teenagers was in collision with a car.

A police spokesman said that both vehicles were travelling along Middle Road when the accident happened and that the car left the scene following the collision.

The motorcycle rider, an 18-year-old Pembroke man and his pillion passenger, an 18-year-old Devonshire man, were injured and taken to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital by ambulance for treatment.

The rider was later discharged, while his passenger is now recovering on a general ward after surgery on a serious but non-life threatening leg injury.

Police inquiries are ongoing and any witnesses are encouraged to contact PC Ashun Wolffe on 295 0011.
