Police Force Mourns Loss of Constable Robert Dyer


Constable Robert Dyer of the Royal Police Force of Antigua and Barbuda tragically died in a motorcycle accident on the Sir Sydney Walling Highway near Luna Park around 11:20 am yesterday.

Corporal Brendan Sutherland, a traffic department supervisor, expressed the deep sorrow felt by the police force upon hearing the news.

He described Constable Dyer as a patient and easy-going individual, known for his passion for motorcycling.

This unfortunate incident followed a previous accident in June 2020 when Constable Dyer broke his leg colliding with a container truck near the Sagicor Life Building.


A second road fatality within the short space of three days has been
recorded on the Sir Sydney Walling Highway (formerly Factory
Road), claiming the life of a police constable.

Reports say that, while heading west on his motorcycle, Officer
Robert Dyer collided head-on with a vehicle traveling in the
opposite direction.
It is said that the impact resulted in the officer dying on the spot.

The twisted and mangled remains of the motorcycle were seen in
the middle of the roadway, as were oil stains from the bike, with
several parts of it strewn across the surface and road shoulder.

The officer’s body was propelled several feet away from the wreck,
and parts of his uniform, including his hat and shoes, were also
scattered across the roadway.

Reportedly, Dyer sustained a multiplicity of injuries, including the
loss of a leg during the impact, and sustained broken bones, with
some being exposed through his elbow.

The motorbike officer was attached to the Traffic Department, and
this was not his first accident while on duty.

He sustained a broken leg on Tuesday, June 9, 2020, in an incident
that took place in the vicinity of Sagicor Life on the Factory Road.
In that instance, he had been traveling behind a 40-foot container

At the same time that the driver attempted to make a right
turn onto Lady Nugent Avenue, Dyer reportedly attempted to pass
and collided with the truck.

As a result of the impact he became airborne and landed on the
nearby pavement, injuring his leg.

  1. My condolences to his family, that man always seem kool. He live in Wilikies smh. True sadness for his family and his youths.

  2. Last week an accident occurred on that Highway.Now today,another accident resulting in death,again. Condolences to the families of both men and their friends.

  3. What-ever happened to teh 20mph signs? Signage in Antigua and Barbuda, adherence
    and enforcement of almost all rules and regulations is the most significant cause of accidents and crimes.

  4. The carriage on the roads continue. No place on Antigua takes more than 30 minutes to get to and I can’t understand for the life of me why some drivers are always speeding.

    So many drivers today need to be pulled off the road and given a refresher course in driving. The mode of driving by many is so senseless.
    My heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family and to the Royal Antigua and Barbuda Police Force.
