Par-la-Ville Road scene of another accident

The area around Par-la-Ville Road experienced another traffic accident this morning, with a young woman the victim of a crash on the roundabout.

Not long after the rush-hour period at about 9.25am, the woman was travelling on a motorbike in a southerly direction on the roundabout when she was struck by a car travelling west along Serpentine Road.

Traffic was diverted for about 45 minutes while she was attended to by passers-by and the driver of the vehicle, before first responders from the Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service arrived on the scene.

The woman, who was conscious and was said to be communicating with attendants, suffered injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening.

The accident happened about 20 yards from the scene where former Royal Gazette cartoonist Peter Woolcock was hit by a car as he attempted to cross the street. He later died from his injuries.
