(Eleuthera, The Bahamas) Police in Eleuthera responded to another road accident involving a tourist driving on the wrong side on Sunday morning, July 23rd, 2017 at about 10am, which had resulted in a head-on-collision, just north of Lord Byron’s Hardware in the Governor’s Harbour area.
An anonymous caller contacted the Governor’s Harbour Police station, reporting that a traffic accident had occurred on the Eleuthera main road involving two vehicles. At the scene, officers observed both vehicles on the western side of the road in the north bound lane.
A white Suzuki Swift had been driven by an Eleutheran adult male, who was accompanied by an Eleutheran adult female passenger, traveling north. They reported to have observed a brown Dodge Durango, driven at the time by an adult male visitor who had four passengers, traveling south on the wrong side of the road, before both vehicles collided into each other.
