Hit-and-run? Bicycle rider gets head injuries after crash with scooter

Not the scene of the accident or the exact bicycle involved in the reported collision.

A bicycle rider has suffered head injuries following a collision with a scooter rider last weekend.

The collision reportedly happened along Sir Francis Drake’s Highway near to the C&D Supermarket.

It is reported that the bicycle rider was heading towards Hannahs Estate — where he reportedly lives — when the collision happened.

Police officers and a medical first responder reportedly arrived on the scene and transported the injured bike rider to the Dr D Orlando Smith Hospital.

Medical personnel later confirmed that the injured bicycle rider suffered head injuries as well as injuries to his arms and legs. BVI News understands that he suffered a fractured ankle.

In the meantime, the scooter rider’s condition is unknown as our news centre was told that he walked away from the scene of the accident before the police arrived.

Recently, Premier Andrew Fahie said the government is concerned about the high costs the public has to incur to care for injured bikers.

He also reminded careless riders that they’ll be at a disadvantage if they are seriously injured as hospitals all around the world are focusing primarily on COVID-19 cases.

      Arrests for ALL offenses is the only way to stop nonsense. Ban will never work, as much as I would like to see it work.

      High powered bikes , 500 cc and more regularly race down the road beside the airport. The police do nothing. No wonder these motorbike riders are out of control.

    99.99% of those young people riding those scooters are on drugs and reckless. The Law enforcement has been soft on them especially when they come to the scene and don’t want to charge them.

  6. Premier says:

    Great to see that you blame cyclists for the inherently mentally disturbed and deficient drivers on this island, I suggest you go for a bike ride, you could do with some exercise

  7. LG says:

    the recent accidents and the noise pollution shows that the BVI is not ready for bigger bikes , if the Government does this it will be against the wishes of the general public and create more havoc
