The island’s sixth road death of 2022 was confirmed by police as Robert Hudson, 52, who was fatally injured Sunday in St George’s.

Mr Hudson, a football referee from St David’s, was seriously hurt at about 2.45pm after apparently losing control of his motorcycle while driving east along Cut Road near the junction with Floral Lane.

His vehicle struck a wall and hit a parked car.

Police said Mr Hudson succumbed to his injuries shortly afterwards, despite life-saving efforts.

The Bermuda Police Service offered condolences to the family and friends of Mr Hudson.

It was the East End’s second tragedy on the roads in less than a month after 37-year-old Freddy Hall, a former professional footballer, lost his life in a crash in St George’s on April 24.

An investigation has begun into the circumstances of the crash, and a police family liaison officer is providing support to the victim’s loved ones.

Anyone with information – particularly witnesses to the crash or anyone who can provide details regarding the whereabouts of Mr Hudson before the collision – is asked to contact Constable DeForest Evans on 717-0860, or e-mail devans@bps.bm
