Visitor in hospital with leg injuries after crash

A 62-year-old male visitor from the US sustained potentially serious leg injuries yesterday in a crash involving a rental scooter and a van on South Road in Hamilton Parish, a police spokesman said.

The collision at about 3.30pm occurred near the junction with Hexham Drive.

At last check today, the man remained in King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, although his injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.

The scooter’s pillion passenger, a 56-year-old woman from the US, sustained abrasions that did not require hospital treatment.

The spokesman said the couple were travelling west on South Road while the van, driven by a 43-year-old Smith’s man, was being driven in the opposite direction.

The van driver was not hurt.

Traffic diversions were temporarily in effect.

Inquiries continue, and any witnesses that have not already come forward are encouraged to call Constable Lisa-Nichole Tucker on 211 or e-mail ltucker@bps.bm.
