A 20-year-old woman was in the intensive care unit today after a serious traffic collision in Smith’s yesterday afternoon.

A police spokesman said that at about 6.35pm yesterday officers responded to reports of a collision between a truck and a motorcycle near the junction of Middle Road and Verdmont Road.

The spokesman said: “Reports are the driver of a truck was attempting to turn off of Verdmont Road headed east on Middle Road, when the vehicle was struck by a bike, headed west on Middle Road.

“The collision resulted in the 20-year-old female bike rider sustaining a serious head injury.

“She was transported via ambulance to the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital and is now warded in the hospital’s intensive care unit.”

The driver of the truck was not injured, and the road was closed to traffic for a period so officers could process the scene.
