Motorcyclist Escapes Serious Injuries In Collision

June 15, 2016

[Updated] A motorcycle rider escaped serious injuries tonight [June 15] after the motorcycle he was riding collided with a car on the Causeway which resulted in the cycle being lodged under the rear end of the car.

The rider appeared to have sustained minor injuries with lacerations to his legs but refused medical attention at the scene. Members of the public assisted the man until Police arrived and processed the collision. Details are limited at this time, however we will update as able.

Update June 16, 4.27pm: A police spokesperson said, “Around 10:20pm on Wednesday, June 15th police officers attended a reported two vehicle collision along the Causeway in St. George’s.

“It appears that a male motorcyclist struck the rear of a car that was stationary due to temporary traffic lights at that location.

“The injured rider, a 21 year old Smith’s parish man, apparently received abrasions to his legs and was taken to the Lamb Foggo Urgent Care Centre in a private vehicle.

“Both vehicles involved in the collision were damaged. However, no other injuries were reported.”

    Looks like the car got it from behind.

      Na it looks like the person was busy reading the BUMPER STICKER.

      NO & NO

      • Harry Buttle says:

        Yet the car still got it in the tailpipe.

  2. Dude says:

    How does this even happen? Did the car stop suddenly? Looking forward to more details, if they ever come… Looks to me like another sad case of risky riding habits, but yes I’m aware that looks can be deceiving. I’m almost certain there was negligence either by the driver or the rider, and that this collision could have been avoided, like many others, if people would only obey the rules of the road.

    Happy to know that there are no serious injuries to anyone.

    • serengeti says:

      The vehicle behind is supposed to be travelling in such a way as to be able to stop if the vehicle in front has to stop suddenly.
      Of course in Bermuda it’s the other way round. The idiot behind blames the car in front for stopping.

      • serioulsy..... says:

        no one in this country seems to know this law. The motorcycle drivers I see every morning speeding past cars in school zones, cutting people off, zipping through the crosswalk without stopping for the students crossing, not stopping at stop signs make me absolutely sick.

        • Ash says:

          Never been cut off by a bike but I’ve lost count of how many times cars have.

  3. Getting Tired says:

    probably cos of the bumper sticker they are displaying !

  4. wondering says:

    funny how this bumper sticker keeps popping up

    sad thing is you don’t see the same for gun violence and abused mothers/fathers/children

    guess it is ok to be a killer or abuser but not ok to be LGBTQ!

    • Time Shall Tell says:

      The bumper sticker is concerning an upcoming referendum, last I checked there was no referendum vote for killers & abusers. It’s OK to have a view point on either side of this up coming referendum but let’s not start twisting things to suite your own agendas (both sides).

  5. Two-Face says:

    I wish opposers to equal human rights would stick those NO stickers on their foreheads so that we can all see who they are.

  6. Otto Trott says:

    One side of the bailey bridge is getting resurfaced so there are traffics lights because only one side is open. If the rider was speeding and did not know about it there could have been some confusion that caused this. Might have had car stop in front while tailgating and just did not expect it on the Causeway. Might have gone to over take found oncoming traffic and no where to go, cut back behind car and could not stop.

    • what is your point? says:

      all of which still make it the motorcycle driver’s fault.

  7. Clearly..... says:

    clearly the motorcycle wasn’t speeding or tailgating… likely culprit is an oil slick or sand right? Or maybe PLP is to blame for this!

  8. dictionary time says:

    this was not a collision unless the Honda was reversing… this is what we call rear-ending.

    For it to be properly labeled as a collision both vehicles must be moving.

    From our friends at Cambridge:
    “collision noun (ACCIDENT)
    › [C or U] an accident that happens when two vehicles hit each other with force:”

    • serengeti says:

      So you can’t collide with a stationary object?

      According to Merriam-Webster:
      Collision:
      to come together with solid or direct impact e.g. ‘the car collided with a tree’.

  9. wow says:

    guess that sticker and that message is doing way more harm than good, eh?

  10. ?? says:

    The only way this could happen by the position of the bike under the car… The car was clearly backing up and the biker did not get enough warning or even slid out trying to stop cause the car was backing up, but the car should have used the mirrors and stopped!
