28 Year Old Female Dies Following Accident

June 12, 2010

The 28 year old female who was involved in an accident a few days ago has lost her battle and and was pronounced dead at 12:30am today (June 12th) by an on call physician at the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital.

She had been hospitalized in the Intensive Care Unit for the past seven days following being critically injured in a single vehicle collision that occurred around 3:30am Saturday, June 5th on Crow Lane (East Broadway) in Paget near the junction with Corkscrew Hill. The Police had earlier said that it appears she was riding a motorcycle when she lost control, colliding with a curb, embankment and pole, sustaining serious head and internal injuries.

Although her identity is already very widely known in the community, it is not being officially released as of yet, with the Police saying that no further information will be released until the next of kin have been notified. Police are continuing to appeal for any witnesses to this collision to contact PC Carol Skerritt on 295-0011.

Bernews joins with the wider Bermudian community in extending our sincere sympathies to her family and friends.

Update June 13: She has officially been named as Katrina Flood.
