Policemen and Women Injured in Traffic Accident on Mollejon Road

ASP Fitzroy Yearwood

A group of law enforcement officers from Belize City who were returning from a Pontoon Waterfall adventure tour in Cayo District, was involved in a road traffic accident that has left one policeman clinging to life. The van assigned to Precinct Two was being driven by Police Constable Douglas Card at the time of the incident. Traveling along with him were nine other officers, including four women.  According to Card, he lost control of the vehicle when it began drifting to the left side of the Mollejon Road onto loose gravel. Here’s more from the police department’s communications director.

“Benque Viejo police responded to a road traffic accident on Sunday evening also, sometime around six o’clock, where they saw a white police van, a thirteen-seater, that is attached to Precinct Two in Belize City and the driver of that vehicle was police officer Douglas Card who explained that he was driving from Pontoon Falls where he had taken some police officers also posted here at Precinct Two for what he referred to as an R&R.  He is saying that at almost the junction of the Arenal Road and the Mollejon Road he felt the vehicle pulling on one side and he tried to keep it on the highway, but unfortunately he lost control almost at the foot of the hill and the vehicle tilted to the left where it ended up on its left side. They were able to come out of the vehicle, four officers received injuries, their names were sent to you of all of them. We have P.C. Usher, that his family is asking for prayers and the department is asking for your prayers. He received neck injuries and he wasn’t breathing properly. I asked for an update a little while ago and they are saying that his condition has not improved since being admitted. I know that the other three officers that were injured received medical treatment, their injuries were classified by a doctor and they have since been released. The other occupants of the vehicle received minimal to no injuries. I know that the specimen was taken from the driver Mr. Card and as soon as we get more updates I will relay it to you.”
