Three people were injured and five vehicles – a motorcycle, a taxi, two cars and a scooter — were damaged in a collision on Harbour Road in Paget yesterday.

A police spokesperson said, “Around 3:30pm Wednesday, April 17th police and fellow first responders attended a reported collision on Harbour Road in Paget in the vicinity of Valley Road.

“It appears that a motorcyclist with a pillion passenger was traveling east on Harbour Road near Lower Ferry when traffic in the area came to a stop due to roadwork and the collision occurred.

“A total of five vehicles were damaged – the eastbound motorcycle, a taxi, two cars and a 50cc scooter.

    Are 16 year old allowed to carry passengers?

      Another one of those unenforced & unenforceable laws.

    first off, the main concern is the health and well being of all those involved in the collision. I hope they recover quickly.

    but is the 16 year old even supposed to be towing anybody on their bike? I thought the law now was that they couldn’t.

    that issue is obviously secondary to their recovery but it’s not totally insignificant information.

    Tailgating. Bermuda’s national pastime.

    • Jonathan Land Evans says:

      And speeding, and turning without signalling (and signalling without turning, too)…

    To stop tailgating and all the other crazy driving !

    Drop the crash helmet law .

    No helmet laws in Florida !

    There are five reasons you will see a big over all improvement in bike riding here with less crashes, including less robberies.

    Riding a motorcycle is all about managing risk.

    1) False sense of security.
    2) Blind spots.
    3) Reduced hearing.
    4) Restricted identity.
    5 ) Freedom.
