There was a terrible traffic accident on the Western Highway on Sunday night. At around seven-forty, twenty-four year old Lenard Gillett of Hattieville lost his life when a van collided into the truck he was travelling in. Police reports are that thirty six year old Jose Ortiz was driving a van between miles four and five when he swerved to his left to avoid hitting a cyclist.
