Traffic Accident In Hugh Town

Emergency services attend the scene of the accident on The Strand

Police, fire crew and the ambulance team were called out yesterday after a road collision on St Mary’s.

A commercial vehicle and a bike came into contact with each other opposite the Dairy on The Strand at around 10.45am.

There were concerns that the female cyclist had been trapped under the vehicle but it turned out to be her rucksack that was jammed.

The local woman was taken to hospital but didn’t sustain serious injury.

The driver of the vehicle told us he was shaken by the accident.

PC Mike Gamble says that he has filed a report and that will be assessed to see if any further action will be taken. He says this is normal practice.
