Second crash, this time on Western Highway

The second accident over the weekend was on the Western Highway between miles two and three. Twenty-six year old Braulio Esquivel, a bus driver of Belize City, was travelling in a 2000 Nissan Frontier pickup from Fabers Road towards Western Avenue at about three forty-four on Sunday. A green Jeep Grand Cherokee heading in the opposite direction swerved into the wrong lane causing Esquivel to run off the road. His vehicle ended up in a nearby swamp, while the jeep, driven by taxi driver, thirty-six year old Ernett Tillett, flipped and landed with all four wheels in the air; extensively damaged. Amazingly, no serious injuries were reported and Esquivel only complained of pain to his left wrist. Tillett has been served with a notice of intended prosecution.
