Five injured in road accidents

A 48-year-old motorcyclist injured in a three-vehicle crash in Devonshire yesterday is now recovering on a general ward.

Police say the man, from Warwick, suffered a leg injury that is not as serious as first thought when he collided with two cars.

The accident — one of four reported yesterday — happened at the junction of Middle Road and Montpelier Road at about 6.45pm.

About 25 minutes earlier, a motorcyclist and pedal cyclist crashed in the area of Shelly Bay Field on North Shore Road, Hamilton Parish.

Today, police said the 51-year-old male pedal cyclist, from Hamilton Parish, was in a stable condition on a general ward at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital. The 35-year-old female motorcyclist, from St George's, has been discharged from hospital.

At about 8am yesterday, two motorcyclists crashed with a car travelling the opposite direction on North Shore Road, near to Cable Hill, Devonshire.

The male motorcyclists, aged 31 and 41, both from St George's, were treated at hospital and later discharged. All three vehicles were damaged and the incident led to traffic delays in the North Shore area.

At about 4.15pm, a van ended up on its side after colliding with a taxi at the roundabout at Barkers Hill and North Shore Road in Devonshire. Both vehicles were damaged but nobody was reported injured.

Witnesses should call police on 295-0011.
