“A traffic accident involving an SUV and dump truck was reported at the Boom access road on Sunday, thirtieth of October. Police visited the area about nine-thirty a.m.; the area is about two to three miles away from the intersection of the Phillip Goldson Highway. Upon arrival, police observed a blue Chevy trailblazer on the middle of the road with extensive damages to its front portion. Also the left wheel was off the vehicle and a female was trapped inside. A little further a black and white freightliner dump truck was seen overturn on the right side of the road coming from the direction of the Phillip Goldson Highway to Hattieville. The truck was extensively damaged and its driver Jevaughn Hewlett, twenty-one years of a Hattieville address, received injuries to the lower portion of his body. The female, whose identity was learned to be Faith Thompson, a resident of the Belize River Valley was removed from the vehicle by special equipment from the fire service. She was then transported to the K.H.M.H. where presently she is undergoing treatment. We have checked her condition up to this morning and it was critical but stable.”
