Elderly woman injured in car accident

An elderly woman is being treated in hospital after seriously fracturing her leg when her car veered off the road and down an embankment.

The woman, 80, was travelling west on North Shore Road when she drove off the main road and into the side of the turning to Shelly Bay Beach car park. The car was extensively damaged.

A spokeswoman for the Bermuda Police Service who was on the scene said: “The woman's injuries are not believed to be life-threatening but the lady is elderly.”

Police are appealing for anyone who may have seen this accident to contact the Roads Policing Unit on 295-0011.
