An off-duty police officer began life-saving efforts on a motorcycle rider who lost consciousness in a collision with another bike last night.

The collision occurred at about 7pm near Pompano Beach Road on Middle Road, Southampton.

A police spokesman said an off-duty police officer who happened to be at the scene “commenced life-saving efforts” before fellow officers and first responders arrived.

The spokesman said in a statement: “Initial reports suggest that a male was travelling east on a motorcycle when another male on an auxiliary cycle, also travelling east, attempted to overtake the motorcycle rider causing the vehicles to collide.

“As a result, the motorcycle rider was left unresponsive.

“Life-saving efforts were commenced by an off-duty police officer, who happened to come across the scene.

“The motorcycle rider was revived at the scene and conveyed to King Edward Memorial Hospital for further treatment of his injuries.

“The auxiliary cycle rider was also conveyed to hospital for treatment of injuries to his arm.

“Traffic is being diverted through the Railway Trail using a one-lane system.

“Traffic delays are to be expected while police process the scene.”

Police have appealed to anyone who may have witnessed the collision to contact Constable James Williams on 211 or jwilliams@bps.bm
