A traffic accident in the village of San Pablo left four persons suffering from minor injuries. At around 6:45 Saturday evening Orange Walk Police were called to the scene on the Northern Highway where they encountered a white Isuzu pickup truck bearing license plate CZL-1254 with extensive damage to the front, on both doors, and a broken windshield.
On the scene also was a Ford double door pickup truck bearing license plate CZL-1852 with minor damages. Initial investigations reveal that one Armando Tun, 31 years old of San Pedro Village in Corozal Town, was driving his double cab pickup truck towards Orange Walk when he lost control of the vehicle and ran into the white Isuzu truck driven at the time by Efrain Correa, travelling on the opposite direction.
As a result of the impact Efrain Correa received injuries to the forehead and complained of swelling to his left foot. Travelling along with Efrain Correa were Delmar Correa and Germain Correa. Efrain Correa received a small cut wound to the left side of his face and left hand while Germain Correa got a swollen nose and complained of pain to his body.
It is believed that Armando Tun was driving under the influence of alcohol at the time of the incident. He refused to give a blood specimen to Police.
When he appeared in Court Tun pled guilty to driving without due care and attention and not guilty to failing to provide a blood specimen and three counts of negligent grievous harm. He was offered bail of $2000 and is scheduled to reappear in Court on June 16th.
