Another Accident on the George Price Highway

There have been extensive reconstruction works on the George Price highway, indisputably the most dangerous roadway which can claim the most fatalities from road traffic accidents. This morning at around seven-thirty one driver was extremely fortunate to escape death. It happened at around mile twenty, as BELTRAIDE employee Nicole Zetina headed towards Belize City. A dump truck allegedly too far into her lane forced her to the extreme shoulder of the road, and on a road slick from a recent drizzle that spelled disaster. Andre O’Brien saw it all happen.


Andre O’Brien, Witness
“At about roughly seven-thirty a.m., I was heading up to Belmopan. Just before reaching the curve, I was behind a dump truck, but it seemed as if though the dump truck was not on his right shoulder and the driver coming from Belmopan on the curve, I think went too close to the edge and I think one of her wheels slipped off the side and on to the gravel an she lost control. She flipped about four or five times. Thank god she is okay. She walked out, we kept her talking to keep conscious and the ambulance is finally here and they are taking her to the hospital.”

“Could you explain the extent of the injuries, at least that you observed?”

 

Andre O’Brien

“I don’t see anything broken on her. From the glass that shattered, there is just a lot of splinters all over her and minor cuts she has…from what I could see. I guess she probably has internal, but you never know. Luckily she was wearing her seatbelts so that saved her a lot.”

“Well from the magnitude of the accident you experienced, I guess you’d say she is lucky to be alive.”

 

Andre O’Brien

“Lucky, she played a lucky card this morning; someone is on her side.”


News Five has been informed that the dump truck which allegedly contributed to the accident continued on its way without stopping.

    ALL ….ALLL.. I MEAN ALL DUMP TRUCK DRIVERS HAVE NO RESPECT FOR OTHER MOTORISTS ,BECAUSE THE TRUCKS THEY DRIVE IS LARGE.
    BUT HOPEFULLY AND BY AND BY THEY WILL CRASH INTO A HEAVY TOWHEAD AND THEN THEY WILL PAY FOR THEIR SINS !!!
