RTA on Stann Creek Valley Road Leaves Four Persons Injured

A road traffic accident on Monday afternoon sent four persons to the hospital.  Dangriga resident Daniel Noralez was driving a green Ford Ranger pick-up with three passengers on the Stann Creek Valley Road when he lost control at around mile four.  The group had left Pomona and was heading to Dangriga when the crash occurred. Noralez and Olrick Castillo were flung from the car.  Noralez received sustained serious head and body injuries, while Castillo suffered serious head injuries.  The other two men Eric McKenzie and Lynden Kelly did not receive life-threatening injuries.  The men were rushed to the Southern Regional Hospital for treatment.  Primary Care Paramedic Giovanni Martinez arrived on the scene shortly after and he told us what he saw.

“While travelling in the bus I saw that there was a police car racing to a scene and when I arrived at the scene there was actually a car accident. A car ran off the road four miles on the Southern Highway. So when I arrived there, there were four persons injured and I decided to call the ambulance services which is the one I actually work for and I assisted and aided in moving the patients from the location they were on to the hospital itself.   The scene itself they were driving in a pickup truck. They were four of the in a pickup truck. They were going, I guess heading to Belmopan and when they got to the curve it looks like the driver lost control and that is when they ended up in the ditch itself. There was quite an extent of damages to the vehicle itself. It is good that the four patients are likely still doing really well. Hopefully the doctors do a really good job in triaging. The two patients that I was assisting, one of them had a broken femur and a humor, broken arm and broken leg. The other one had received fractures to the left side of the chest area.”
