Customs Officer, Curtis Gordon was rushed to Mount St John’s Medical Centre (MSJMC) with injuries to his leg late yesterday after his motorcycle collided with an SUV.
Reports indicate that Gordon was travelling on Falmouth main road when the collision occurred. He was thrown from his Suzuki motorcycle and landed across the road — several metres from the point of impact.
Police at the scene of the accident told OBSERVER media that Gordon had collided with a black jeep, which was driven by Peter Bramble.
Eyewitnesses said it appeared as though the man’s leg was broken, and Head of the Traffic Department Superintendent Leonard Cabral said doctors indicated that Gordon suffered a broken right hand and right leg.
Emergency Medical Services transported the injured man to the hospital while police blocked off both lanes of the usually busy road, halting traffic in and out of English Harbour, via that road for over an hour.
Gordon’s partner, Mellissa Crump, told OBSERVER media last night that he was “moaning in pain” but added that he was “OK, thank God it’s not worse.”
She said since getting the call she has been at Gordon’s side. The woman said doctors are to conduct tests to assess the full extent of his injuries. Doctors were also expected to operate on him last night.
