A motorcyclist suffered “very serious injuries” yesterday afternoon after a bike was in collision with a bus.

A police spokeswoman said the incident happened about 4.25pm.

She added: “Initial information suggests the vehicles were travelling in opposite directions when they were involved in a collision.”

The spokeswoman said the injured rider was rushed to the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital for treatment.

The driver of the bus was uninjured.

Police diverted traffic from the scene, Somerset Road in Sandys, near the junction with Scaur Lane, after the crash.

The spokeswoman said traffic was being diverted along the Railway Trail between Sound View Road and Lantana Road using a one way system.

She added: “We are asking the motoring public to be patient while the scene is being processed, as this is expected to take some time.”

Police have appealed for witnesses.
