Pedestrian and motorcyclist injured

An elderly pedestrian suffered chest and pelvic injuries after being hit by a woman on a motorcycle this morning.

The man, 76, was taken to the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital following the accident on Middle Road, just east of Lindo’s, Warwick, at about 9am. This afternoon he was said to be on a general ward.

The woman, 28, sustained a head injury and needed stitches to her lips and chin, but is expected to be discharged from hospital today.

Police diverted traffic as officers processed the scene this morning.

It was the third serious road accident in Bermuda within 16 hours, following the death of a 52-year-old motorcyclist on Black Watch Pass yesterday evening, and a motorcyclist suffering serious leg injuries in a crash on Middle Road, Southampton, early this morning.

Witness should call police on 295-0011.
