    Hope all is ok. BUT that don’t happen at the speed limit..

    • When I woke up this morning, (Sun.20th 2016) and seen this on the “screen” I was to say the least, “shocked!”
      Often accidents happen due to carelessness; yet (often) thing of this magnitude i. e. the damages we see in the photos are / can be contributed to medical reasons…like a heart attack or a Stroke.
      Be “His will” the individual/s will recover from this traumatic experience :-(

    Dunn, NOBODY drives at 35k in Bermuda so your question makes no sense.

    • Slow and Steady says:

      Perhaps people should go the speed limit. And Dunn Juice’s comment wasn’t a question so your question makes no sense.

    • Dunn Juice says:

      If it had this ? at the end of my statement, that would make it a question..

      • alonso says:

        You are so right Dunn. I should have noticed your double periods.. You still do not make any sense. Show me one person who drives or rides at the speed limit which is 35k for you and those of you who don’t know.

    Would love to see where it hit first.
    That is some massive damage as can be seen by the shape of the engine on the hood and the hole dripping oil.

    Nothing further.

    Bermuda’s rally car drivers in action on the weekend. More practice needed.

      • mixitup says:

        ‘You’ mean that ‘you’ were there……. Sad when someone comes online pointing out spelling errors and screws up their own shytee…

  6. Lala says:

  7. Coffee says:

  8. g says:

    if and only if she was arrested and found to have been drunk..not only should she be fined but pay for police and fire rescue!

      Someone’s mother, daughter or friend could have died. Bermuda used to be an empathetic community. The young lady did not smell of alcohol at all.
