2 Bowen & Bowen employees badly injured in traffic accident

Two Bowen and Bowen employees are also in critical condition at the K.H.M.H. following an accident on Sunday evening. Thirty eight year old Ian Nunez of Poinsetta Street and thirty-five year old Deon Geban of Faber’s Road had just left a family day at the Bowen and Bowen Factory in Ladyville when upon reaching the curve before the Burrell Boom cutoff, the vehicle they were traveling in ran off the road and overturned several times. Nunez received a broken pelvic, spine, hand and foot, while Geban was injured on the back, shoulder and foot. Rural Executive Officer, Assistant Superintendent Christopher Noble, also commented on this traffic incident.

“On Sunday, we did received information of a vehicle that had overturned and two persons were injured. The area right before the Burrell Boom cutoff traveling from Ladyville towards Burrell Boom…it is a curve. The vehicle ran off the road and may have overturned several times. There is severe damage to the vehicle. Persons are, there were at least two, were inside the vehicle. They were assisted by the ambulance personnel. We did contact the military personnel and their ambulance did visit. Thankfully, there were medical officers who were passing by and assisted. That one steps from what may have been a social event for a company that these people work for and it was after this event.  There was a medical officer, at least one on scene; that assisted us greatly. The military did send out their ambulance because we do have good working relationship with them. But even if we have the working relationship, it is never one that you want to call upon because there is a high level of carelessness sometimes on the part of the drivers. I keep saying be careful, be cautious and in this case when it comes to them, had they been cautious, I believe the life they would have saved would have been their own.”
