As many as seven band members were injured in a traffic accident on the Northern Highway over the weekend. The band was heading to Belize City in a Chevy pick-up when the vehicle overturned. Our crew was also travelling back to Belize City and Isani Cayetano has this report.

A collection of musical instruments, belonging to members of a local band known as the Punta Boys, littered the shoulder of the Northern Highway near mile forty-seven on Saturday evening.  In a rather unusual juxtaposition the loosely scattered equipment lay side by side with relatively fresh spots of blood.  The tale of the near fatal traffic accident can be told from a glance at the contents of this upended Chevy pickup which includes this beer bottle.  According to twenty-seven year old Deny Eilijio, he was traveling in the direction of Belize City when the right rear wheel of his vehicle blew out causing it to overturn. Inside the extensively damaged vehicle were six others; namely, thirty year old Mark Arzu, twenty-one year old Giovanni Mejia, thirty-four year old Isidro Avila, nineteen year old Andrew Mejia, twenty-eight year old Carlos Chimilio and twenty-seven year old Elmer Chimilio.  All seven men received varying degrees of injuries to the head and body and were transported to the Northern Regional Hospital for treatment.

When we checked this afternoon the band members where still hospitalized in Orange Walk.
