Water truck rolls off barge in San Pedro

Story PictureAn accident at sea created a bizarre sight in San Pedro on Wednesday afternoon as islanders were shocked to see a truck trying to swim. According to our sources, around three yesterday afternoon a Belize City water bowser bound for the construction sites on the northern part of the island rolled off the barge and ended up in the sea. Loaded with three thousand gallons of water, the truck did stay afloat but lights were used to illuminate the site last night in an effort to prevent accidents. The truck was eventually pulled onto the beach earlier today and we understand officials from the Department of the Environment visited the area to assess any negative impacts to the scene. It is believed that the truck may have been loaded too close to the edge prior to the trip to San Pedro and rough seas caused the vehicle to shift position and eventually fall overboard.
