Police confirmed the woman is in her late 40s and is
being monitored for serious injuries in the intensive care unit (ICU).
“I’m unable to provide the nature of those injuries
but she is under monitoring in ICU,” police spokesman Trevor Pitt yesterday
The crash involved three people when two motorcycles
collided at Titikaveka.
Pitt labelled the incident as a serious trauma event,
attended by two ambulances.
“The pair on the other motorcycle, in their 20s, were
admitted for observation.
“Again, I can’t detail the nature of the injuries but
I’m told fractures were sustained.”
However, he said early indications are that speed was
a factor, causing one driver to cross into the path of an oncoming motorcycle,
which was carrying two people.
Police were at the scene of the crash on Monday
conducting forensic examinations.
Meanwhile, Pitt said the weekend in general was a busy
one for police, otherwise relatively low key with mostly minor incidents
On Sunday morning, police interviewed the driver of a
car, which had gone into a ditch at Black Rock.
Later in the day, an alert was raised about fishermen
in a precarious position near Avana passage.
Police were not mobilised, but some local assistance
was sought to contact the men.
In the early hours of Sunday, a man was arrested and
remanded to prison for breaching his court orders.
At Betela early Saturday afternoon, a crash occurred
involving a motorbike and car.
The driver of the car is reported to have made a U-turn
on the main road, colliding with the motorcyclist, a woman with a young child.
No injuries were reported.
In the early hours of Saturday, three people were
forbidden from driving by police.
Five complaints of excessive noise were reported to police
during the weekend.
Pitt said no charges have arisen from any of the road
incidents as yet as investigations wrap up.
