Overturned Car in Southampton [Updated]

Fri, 2018-01-12

At About 8:44pm (Friday) police and other first responders attended a report of a road traffic collision outside Henry VIII Restaurant on South  Road in Southampton, where a car over turned.

It appears that a car was traveling west on South Road when the driver of the car apparently maneuvered around a pedestrian resulting in driver hitting two parked cars and flipping over.

The driver subsequently was trapped in the car, resulting in the female driver having to be extricated out of the vehicle by Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service.

She then was taken via ambulance to the hospital and her injuries do not appear to be life threatening.

It should be noted that the pedestrian was  not injured. 

Traffic in the area was detoured whilst the scene was being processed.

Update: Monday, January 15th - At last check earlier this morning (January 15th) a 71 year old Southampton woman (car driver) and a 28 year old Warwick woman (pedestrian) had been medically assessed at the hospital and discharged after being involved in an incident that occurred around 8:45pm Friday, January 12th where a car driven by the female senior citizen along South Road, Southampton near Henry VIII Restaurant overturned after crashing into two parked cars.
