A 49-year-old man was killed in a crash at Barkers Hill roundabout in Devonshire yesterday.

He is the tenth person to die on Bermuda’s roads this year.

A police spokesman said the man was riding a motorcycle which was involved in a collision with a water truck.

He added: “Police and first responders attended a road traffic collision on North Shore Road in Devonshire at 5.33pm.

“Details are still emerging but it appears that a male on a motorcycle collided with a water truck.”

The spokesman last night confirmed that the rider had died. He added: “An investigation into the incident is now under way and no other information will be forthcoming until the next of kin has been notified.”

The roundabout is a frequent accident spot. There have been two other fatal collisions in the area in the past ten years.

In 2011, Dion Richardson died after an early morning crash at the same roundabout.

Kelvin Lamar Quarles died from head injuries after falling from his motorcycle in the same area in 2008.

Any witnesses to this collision are asked to contact police on 295-0011.
