Collision: an SUV crashed over an embankment at the junction of Orange Valley Road and Middle Road, Devonshire after being in collision with a motorcycle. The motorcycle rider is in intensive care at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital.

A teenager is in the intensive care unit today after a collision yesterday in Devonshire.

A police spokesman said they received reports of a serious two-vehicle collision involving an SUV and a motorcycle near the Devonshire Post Office at about 4pm.

“It now appears that the driver of the SUV was exiting Orange Valley Road to head west along Middle Road when the motorcyclist, who was travelling east along Middle Road behind a taxi, attempted to overtake the taxi,” the spokesman said.

“As a result, the SUV and motorcycle collided. The SUV then struck a wall and went over an embankment.

“The rider involved, said to be a 17-year-old male from Pembroke, was rushed to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital via ambulance for treatment of head injuries. At last check he had been admitted into the intensive care unit.

“The SUV driver, said to be a 57-year-old Paget woman, was not hurt.”

Both vehicles were damaged in the collision and traffic was diverted from the area for about two hours as the scene was processed by investigators.
