A man is being treated in the intensive care unit after colliding with the back of a van in Sandys Parish yesterday.

A spokesman for the Bermuda Police Service said the 52-year-old Sandys man, who is in a stable condition, was riding behind a van that stopped when the car in front of it stopped.

The incident occurred at about 2pm on Somerset Road in Sandys Parish, near the junction with Heydon Gardens.

The spokesman said: “It appears that a van being driven along Somerset Road came to a stop after a car in front stopped.

“Apparently a motorcyclist riding behind the van then collided with the back of the van.

“The rider, understood to be a 52-year-old Sandys Parish man, was transported to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital via ambulance for treatment of his injuries.

“At last check, he was listed in stable condition in the intensive care unit.

“The driver of the van, understood to be a 31-year-old Sandys Parish man, was not hurt.”

There were traffic delays in the area for about an hour while the scene was processed.

Any witnesses to the collision are asked to call Pc Shane Granville on 211, or e-mail sgranville@bps.bm.
