June 28, 2021 | 1 Comment

The police confirmed they are investigating the “circumstances of a suspected collision” after a 19-year-old Southampton man “was found unconscious and injured” on Palmetto Road in Devonshire.

A police spokesperson said, “Inquiries continue by the Bermuda Police Service [BPS] regarding the circumstances of a suspected collision, after a 19-year-old Southampton man is hospitalised.

“Around 1:10am Saturday, 26th June, police, Bermuda Fire & Rescue Service as well as ambulance personnel responded to a reported single vehicle collision on Palmetto Road in Devonshire, near the junction with Frog Lane.

“Details remain limited at this time. However, it appears that on the arrival of first responders the 19-year-old Southampton man was found unconscious and injured, lying in the road with several individuals gathered around him.

“He was tended to on site by EMTs before being transported to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital via ambulance for further treatment of facial, back and internal injuries.

“A BPS Traffic Collision Investigator, along with Forensic Support Unit personnel, processed the scene.

“This incident is believed to have involved a single motorcycle – but the vehicle involved was not found at the scene. It is also unclear if the injured teen was the rider or pillion passenger at the time of the incident.

“As a result, the BPS is urging any witnesses to what occurred – or members of the public with any relevant information – to come forward. Please contact Constable Raychel Weeks on 295-0011 or via e-mail rweeks@bps.bm as soon as possible.”
