Two Visitors Injured In Rental Cycle Collision

June 18, 2015

Two visitors to the island — a 64 year old man and his 63 year old wife — were injured in a rental cycle collision yesterday.

A police spokesperson said, “Around 11:55am on Wednesday, June 17th first responders attended a reported serious single vehicle rental cycle collision on Somerset Road in Sandys parish near the junction with Mangrove Bay Road.

“Initial details were limited; however it now appears that a rental cycle being ridden out of Dockyard clipped a wall resulting in the rider, a 64 year old man and his wife, a 63 year old woman, being injured. At the scene the male visitor appeared to have sustained serious head injuries, while the female visitor apparently had less serious injuries.

“The couple was taken via ambulance to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, where the male visitor’s injuries were apparently determined to be less serious than originally believed. Therefore after receiving treatment, the visitors were later discharged.”

    How many more visitors have to hurt themselves before the BTA looks at transport.

      the bikes offer freedom of movement. and as long as its not raining its way better than a car or bus

    I know bike rental has been a tradition for years, but maybe it’s time to re-think this enterprise.
    Bermuda’s roads are much busier, vehicles bigger and drivers not as courteous as days gone past.
    With the number of mini-buses now available, maybe an alternate form of ‘self’ transportation needs to be looked at!
    Just saying!!!
