Renowned illustrator Peter Woolcock is recovering in hospital after being involved in a traffic accident this morning within minutes of delivering his weekly cartoon to The Royal Gazette on Par-la-Ville Road.

The Bermuda Police Service confirmed that his injuries do not appear to be life-threatening.

Mr Woolcock, whose works have featured in the newspaper for more than two decades, was believed to be about to cross the road when he was struck by a car travelling in a southerly direction.

He was transported by ambulance to the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, where he is in a stable condition, and his family have been notified.

Police are continuing to investigate the incident, but traffic is now flowing in both directions after a delay of close to three hours.

Any witnesses should contact the main police telephone number 295-0011.
