A pedestrian suffered a serious leg injury last night after he was hit by a motorbike.

A police spokesman said that officers received reports of a collision just west of Terceira’s Service Station on North Shore Road, Devonshire, about 7pm.

He added: “The male pedestrian sustained a serious leg injury, was attended to at hospital and discharged.

“The male motorcycle rider who sustained facial injuries, was arrested and bailed to appear in court.”

The spokesman said officers blocked off North Shore Road between Loyal Hill and Store Hill for about 90 minutes as the scene was examined.
