Man hurt in motorcycle accident

Police blocked off traffic
heading into Prospect from George Town for hours Friday afternoon following a serious, rush-hour accident along the Linford Pierson Highway.

The road was blocked about a mile
from the roundabout near the Lions centre just after 4pm and traffic was being diverted.

The accident involved a motorcycle which had apparently lost control and spun out in the road way. It was unknown if any other vehicles were involved. 

The bike caught fire after the wreck and fire crews had to respond to put out the small blaze.

One man, who was believed to be a customs officer, was taken to hospital. Medical personnel described him as conscious and alert. He was expected to survive.
