Two teens recovering after Warwick crash

First Prev 1 2 3 Next Last

Two teenagers involved in a two-vehicle collision in Warwick last night are today resting in a general ward with non-life threatening injuries.

According to a spokesman for the Bermuda Police Service, the 17-year-old men were travelling west on a motorcycle on Middle Road when they collided with a car turning on to Cobbs Hill Road at about 7.45pm.

“As a result, the rider of the bike was trapped under the car and had to be extricated by the Bermuda Fire Service.

“His pillion passenger was catapulted some 20 feet, landing over a wall on the Warwick Workman's Club property.”

Both men were conveyed to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital with injuries that were considered serious, but as of this afternoon they have been moved to a general ward.

According to the spokesman, the driver of the car was visibly shaken but not injured. The accident spot was close to where 22-year-old La-Nae Woodley lost her life in April last year.

Middle Road was last night closed off from Manse Road to Morgans Road and access to the junction was also restricted from Cobbs Hill Road north and south.

Officers from the forensic support unit and traffic collision investigators were on the scene and police are asking witnesses to contact them on 295-0011.
