Motorcyclists hurt in three vehicle crash

Two motorcyclists have been taken to hospital after a three-vehicle crash on Frog Lane, near the junction Gymnasium Road in Devonshire, on Tuesday afternoon.

“It appears that a car being driven along Frog Lane collided with the two motorcyclists and then struck a traffic island near the junction with Parsons Road as well as a utility pole, before finally coming to a stop,” said a police spokesman.

The injured riders, a 45-year-old Sandys parish man and a 34-year-old Devonshire man were taken to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital for treatment and later discharged.

The driver of the car, a 26-year-old Smith's parish man, was arrested on suspicion of impaired driving and subsequently released on police bail pending a court appearance in due course, added the spokesman.

“Traffic diversions were in effect while the relevant police personnel processed the scene. BELCO personnel responded to repair the damaged utility pole and the three damaged vehicles were eventually towed away.”

Meanwhile, a 29-year-old Sandys parish man injured when the motorcycle he was riding collided with a truck around 12.15pm on Tuesday is in stable condition on a general ward at the hospital.

“It now appears that the truck was being driven out of Scaur Hill Drive and the motorcyclist was travelling along Somerset Road when the collision occurred,” explained the spokesman.

Inquiries into both incidents continue and any witnesses should contact the main police telephone number 295-0011.

The 29-year-old Pembroke man injured when the motorcycle he was riding struck a wall around 12.30am last Thursday on Fairyland Road in Pembroke, near the junction with Fairyland Lane, has been transferred from the hospital's Intensive Care Unit to a general ward and is listed in stable condition.

• At last check earlier today, the 19-year-old Pembroke man injured in a reported disturbance that apparently took place along the Railway Trail in Warwick near Pearman's Hill around 7.45pm on Tuesday, remains in the hospital's Intensive Care Unit in stable condition.
