Firefighters helped motorists – including two police officers – involved in separate collisions in St David’s yesterday morning.

A spokesman for the Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service said that at 11.15am officers responded to a report of a single-vehicle collision near Dolly’s Bay.

“On arrival to the road traffic collision, fire crews found one car which had hit a wall,” the spokesman said. “The driver of the car did not have any injuries.”

While still at the scene, firefighters received calls about another incident in which a car went off the road and into the water near the former Severn Bridge, St David’s.

The spokesman said: “Crews immediately left the scene of the first RTC and responded to the vehicle in the water.”

When the firefighters reached the area of the second incident, they found that both of the passengers in the car had both been able to safely escape the vehicle.

The spokesman added: “Both sustained non life threatening injuries and were treated at the scene by Fire Service EMT’s then transported to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital by ambulance.”

A police spokesman this afternoon confirmed that two police officers had been involved in the latter of the two collisions.

The spokesman said: “Thankfully, neither officer was seriously hurt.

“Out of an abundance of caution, both officers were transported via ambulance to KEMH for treatment to their injuries.

“The vehicle was extensively damaged. Traffic was diverted away from the area while the scene was processed by Traffic Collision Investigators.”

Anyone with information about the incident is urged to call police at 211 or 295-0011.
