    This is a tricky one.

    Thanks Bernews for your timely reporting. I don’t get out much and look forward to you keeping me up to date on whats happening around Bermuda. Thanks again.

    That corner has seen its fair share of collisions (single vehicle or otherwise) over the years. I suppose more signage advising to slow down in the area can be erected, but it’s really not going to have much effect.

    I know this was an “accident”, and it’s a good thing nobody was seriously injured, but I can’t help thinking of how many times I have seen pickup trucks that look to be overloaded and the driver is just whizzing around corners without a care in the world!

    • And I’ve seen worst on Youtube.

      Based on my observations the only large vehicles you can trust to not be speeding are the fuel supply tankers .
      With very , very few exceptions the rest are piloted by people who think they’re driving 3000lb sports cars AND yakking on the cell phone whilst driving.
      The possibilities for disaster are unlimited and I can’t believe that it doesn’t happen on a daily basis.
      Has anyone experienced a wheel dropping off of an H registration truck coming around a corner at them ? Or maybe the tyre treads de-laminating on an tractor trailer and having them fly over your shoulder as you’re passing in the opposite direction on your bike ?
      I have !

      Well if you believe that an HC truck overturned on our roads because of bags of trash, I have a bridge to sell you.
      It’s time to check phone records, tyre pressure, brakes, hydrolics of the vehicles involved.
      Too many people cutting corners between yearly appointments at TCD.

    That’s headed towards Flatts, so, why is he on the opposite side of the road?

    • wahoo juice says:

      That is what I was trying to get at above it is hard to explain how he ended up here if he was heading West he would not have even started turning yet! Mr. Revere is right check tyre treads perhaps… something went wrong here.
