November 13, 2012

At approximately 3pm this afternoon [Nov 13] an accident occurred on on Parson’s Lane, Devonshire near the Pure Water depot. Two vehicles appeared to be involved in the collision, and one of them ended up partially lodged on a wall.

The Police responded to the scene, and blocked traffic while the SUV remained lodged on the wall. It appears that no one was injured, however we will update with official information as able.

    @ BERNEWS
    Since when did you start singling out the models of cars.
    The last time i checked TCD, Bermuda's roads have:
    1) auxiliary cycles
    2) motor cycles
    3) private cars
    4) vans and trucks (including L, LP, Intermediate, HA, HB & HC)

    Whilst i can appreciate that you like to be creative in your story writing, if you plan on singling out SUV, why not name every type or class or vehicle involved in accidents.

    Remember whats good for the goose is good for the gander.

      Thanks for your comment...but actually we do as you have suggested above and generally post the type of vehicle in the title. If we don't, we are left with reporting a "vehicle" was in an accident week after week.

      The links to the last 5 accident stories, with photos, are below and as you can see we listed the type of vehicle in the title each time including cars, taxis, motorcycles and a truck.

      As far as SUVs themselves...it's a catch 22, we've called an SUV a "car" before and had people complain saying its an SUV. It's sticky as unless we get really boring and call everything a "vehicle collision" some people will likely disagree with the choice of words. We mean no offense to any of the vehicles...

        You can't offend a car, it's a car, an SUV (Sports utility vehicle) is a type not model, crossover, sedan, all just types and not brand specific, anyway if it was a good SUV they could have used 4WD to come back off the wall

    @ BERNEWS
    As the old folks would say right church wrong pew.
    All i am saying is SUV is NOT a class of vehicle at TCD. When i go to register my vehicle at TCD, i register a private motorcar not a SUV.

    How hard is is to say a motor car, because thats what i bought.

    Because according to you, your stories should read:

    1) Class G Private Car - Station Wagon
    2) Class C Private Car
    3) 2 auxiliary cycles and 1 motor cycle
    4) 2 Taxi's and a Class C Private Car
    5) Class B Private Car

    Catch my drift now.

      We understand where you are coming from...however like we stated no matter what we call vehicles some people will complain as everyone has different views. Not just vehicles, titles/stories/photos/words etc are always up for debate - can never please everyone as there are so many different views...

    it appears that this driver hoped no one would find out about this...

    Bernews in favor of the driver change the title to 'SUV meets Wall'

    What is the big deal? I know! Many people want to stay politically correct and not draw attention to ALL the Hugh SUV's on our roads owned by people who can't drive them. I am not picking on that driver but that road is very dangerous for a car and I have experienced drivers racing through there and swerving to miss a head on collision. I don't care how TCD has them classified, they are not cars.

  8. OMG! Get on with your lives, people! Bernews was differentiating between a regular "car" and an Suv. Let them do the reporting, AND the editing on such a simple matter. The important thing is that no one was hurt.
