Sat, 2005-03-19

Around 10:15pm on Saturday, Police attended a reported serious single vehicle road traffic collision on Harbour Road in Warwick, near the junction with Keith Hall Road involving an auxiliary cycle. On arrival officers found an unresponsive female victim lying in the road. EMTs arrived on the scene a short time later and attended to the victim before rushing her to KEMH via ambulance. Following further inquiries it was determined that a second person was on the cycle with the victim at the time of the collision. The rider of the cycle, a 17 year old Sandy’s parish man, was later located at Keith Hall Lane and subsequently arrested for suspicion of impaired driving. The victim, a 15 year old Sandy’s parish girl, succumbed to her injuries at the hospital and was pronounced dead around 12:15 this morning by an on call physician. Inquiries into this incident are underway. Police are appealing for any witnesses or anyone with any information to contact WPC Francilla Henry on 299-4302 or 295-0011. We are especially interested in speaking with the male rider of an orange Yamaha V80 or V50 motorcycle that was traveling east with the cycle involved in the collision.

The Bermuda Police Service can now confirm the death of 15 year old Krystle Babon of Sandy’s parish. She was pronounced dead at KEMH around 12:15 this morning after she was involved in a serious road traffic collision on Harbour Road in Warwick. The Bermuda Police Service extends its sincere condolences to the family of the deceased.

Injury RTC

Around 7:15pm on Saturday, Police attended a road traffic collision resulting in injury on South Road in Devonshire, near the junction with Devonshire Bay Road involving a van and a car. It appears that a white Daewoo van was traveling west on South Road when it was in collision with a white Nissan Sentra traveling in the opposite direction. As a result, both vehicles were extensively damaged. The driver of the van, a 47 year old Hamilton parish man, received lacerations above the right eye and the driver of the car, a 35 year old Pembroke man, sustained a fractured collar bone and an injury to the chest. The car’s passenger, a 6 year old boy, received lacerations to the tongue and was taken to KEMH for treatment. The injuries of the 47 year old man, the 35 year old man and 6 year old by involved in the collision are not believed to be life threatening. The 35 year old Pembroke man (driver of the car) was subsequently arrested for suspicion of impaired driving.
