    Since I didn’t see it , I won’t comment on what happened or make any assumption. I just hope and pray that this individual is okay.

  2. Lady Bug says:

    Is this the corner just after Christ Church in Devonshire as you approach Watlington Road going into Hamilton?

    • OnionBird says:

      Between Saltus Cavendish & Island Construction.

  3. HOTDOG says:

    speeding, cellphone,not paying attention. all of the above

    • Burger says:

      @HOTDOG and others that list assumptions and sometimes negative comments instead of well wishes and concerns for someone that was hurt, may I please remind you that this person is likely someone’s son, brother, father, uncle, cousin and friend.

      I know for sure that I do not know this man. However, I hope that those of you that often make thoughtless comments about a person that is fighting for their like, don’t find that they know this person. Even if you don’t the odds are that someone you know (or you) will find themselves in a similar situation. THink about how painfull your thoughless comments might be to this mans mother, daughter, son, brother , aunt, grandmother, cousin, friend etc….

    • You never know says:

      I don’t think you make those assumptions, if you are not aware of what really happened.

    • LOL says:

    • twin says:

    • Common Sense Talking says:

      Near Christ Church Devonshire.

      • Athie says:

        Am I the only Bermudian who has no idea which church is which?

    • Micro says:

      Looks like just pass the junction with Parson’s Lane

  5. inna says:

    Think the truck pulled to the left to avoid the bike, or the other way around?

  6. Common Sense Talking says:

    The truck is in the bushes so by the looks of it they had to be trying to avoid the crash.

    The bike overtaking the car around the sharpe corner by island construction….heard a very large bang….my wife and i came out of our apartment to see a male lying out on road…she a nurse responded to make sure he was breathing thats all we saw…emergencency response spot on very professional. …prayers to the man and family

  8. Cedar stump says:

    3rd lane on a corner ?

  9. Not smart says:

    There’s no debris in the front or near to the front of the truck. The majority of debris is back a bit and on the same side of the road as the bike so don’t rule out the truck just yet.

  10. Herb says:

    Thats exactly what I see, the debris is on the bikes side of the road along with the trucks front bumper or part of it anyway, tells me the truck was cutting the corner, possible that is as like others i didnt see the collision.

    My thoughts are with the bike rider to recover from this.
