Motorcyclist Badly Injured In St. Thomas Vehicular Accident

News / Virgin Islands / March 7, 2019

ST. THOMAS — A man riding a motorcycle was badly injured Wednesday night during an accident that almost turned deadly, V.I.P.D. Public Information Officer Glen Dratte confirmed to The Consortium Wednesday afternoon, after the publication sought details about the incident.

Mr. Dratte said the accident occurred at about 7:22 p.m. Wednesday, when a silver Nissan Pathfinder was heading westward on the right lane on Veteran’s Drive, and was making a right turn northward on to General Gade (Irvin “Brownie” Brown Drive).

On the other side of the road was a man operating a white 2016 Yamaha 320 motorcycle, traveling eastward on the left lane on Veteran’s Drive. While heading east, however, the motorcyclist collided into the Nissan Pathfinder,  which was attempting to turn right heading north, Mr. Dratte said.

The driver of the Nissan did not sustain injuries, but the motorcyclist was rushed to the hospital for medical care, as he was hurt during the accident, according to police. As of Thursday night, the motorcyclist was in stable condition, Mr. Dratte said.
