Wed, 2019-07-10

Around 1:20pm Tuesday, July 9th two Department of Public Transportation buses collided at the junction of Middle Road and South Road in Southampton, in the vicinity of Barnes Corner.

Police, Bermuda Fire & Rescue Service and ambulance personnel attended the scene.

It now appears that the two buses were being driven in opposite directions along Middle Road when the collision occurred, as the eastbound bus attempted to turn on to South Road.

Two passengers, one from each bus – said to be a 68 year old Sandys parish woman and a 55 year old Sandys parish man – were hurt and transported to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital via ambulance for medical assessment.

Both were treated and later discharged.

It is understood other passengers reported being hurt but did not require immediate medical assessment at the hospital.

There were traffic delays in the area for approximately one hour following the collision.

The scene was examined and the two damaged buses were later towed away.

The Bermuda Police Service would like to thank the bus drivers, passengers and other witnesses that have already provided their accounts of what occurred. Inquiries continue.
