Sixteenth Road Fatality for 2021: Albert Simmons

The Bermuda Police Service (BPS) can now confirm the death of 64-year-old Albert Simmons – Bermuda’s 16th road fatality for 2021 – and extends sincere condolences to his family and friends.

Mr. Simmons, understood to be a Warwick resident, was seriously hurt when the motorcycle he was riding east along Middle Road, Southampton crashed into a wall near the junction with Lighthouse Road around 6pm Sunday, 14th November.

The crash caused Mr. Simmons to be thrown from the motorcycle into Jew’s Bay. He was pulled from the water by members of the public who then began CPR until the arrival of EMTs, who continued performing CPR at the scene.

However, despite these lifesaving efforts, which continued as Mr. Simmons was rushed to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital via ambulance, sadly the 64-year-old later succumbed to his injuries. A BPS Family Liaison Officer has been assigned to help support Mr. Simmons’ family at this difficult time.

The investigation continues regarding the circumstances of this latest fatal crash and the cooperation of those witnesses who have already come forward is greatly appreciated.

Any other witnesses that have not yet come forward – or members of the public with relevant information – are encouraged to call Constable Garwin Phillips on 211 or e-mail gphillips2@bps.bm at the earliest opportunity.

All incidents are under investigation. Police are appealing to members of the public who have witnessed these incidents or may have information pertaining to them to contact their respective Police Station, Police Headquarters at 295-0011 or the confidential Crimestoppers Hotline on 1 (800) 623-8477.
