Female Visitor Stable In ICU After RTA

Around 6:50pm Monday, May 14th police and fellow first responders were dispatched to a reported single vehicle rental scooter crash on Somerset Road in Sandys parish, near the junction with Morgan Hill.

It appears that the rider of a rental (50cc) scooter, believed to be a 44 year old South Carolina woman, was traveling west on Somerset Road when she struck a wall at the bottom of Scaur Hill and was thrown into the ocean approximately 15 feet below.

Apparently off duty police officers in the area at the time quickly came to the injured American visitor’s aid.

Although she was temporarily unconscious, the 44 year old woman quickly regained consciousness and was breathing and responsive before being transported to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital via ambulance.

At last check this morning (May 15th) she was listed in stable condition in the Intensive Care Unit.

Inquiries continue and any witnesses that have not already come forward are asked to contact Constable Keola Thompson on the main police telephone number 295-0011.
