Buses Collide near Airport Road, Passengers Escape Unscathed

Mario Chan

Just before nine thirty this morning, two buses collided near the P.G.I.A. junction in Ladyville. A bus from Sarteneja heading into Belize City hit a smaller tourist bus as it exited the airport junction. There were no passengers in the smaller vehicle which received significant damage, and only the driver was injured. The Sarteneja bus was full, but there were no injuries reported and relatively minor damage to the bus. Fortunately there is no real tragedy to report tonight, but it was a near thing. Driver Mario Chan told News Five what happened.

Insp. Frederick Gordon, Rural Executive Officer

“We are appealing to drivers that when you are approaching a village please slow down. We are contemplating possibly putting speed bumps in the area, so we will be looking into that matter at this time. Over the recent week or so we have several checkpoints in the area of Manatee Lookout at the approach of Ladyville because these are some of the factors which cause us to increase our checkpoints in the area.”

 

The tourist bus had just dropped off passengers at the Phillip Goldson International Airport. Police are investigating to determine liability in the accident.
