Screen_Shot_2014-11-14_at_8.08.59_PMA custom officer attached to the Northern Border is lucky to be alive tonight after a vehicular mishap on the Philip Goldson Highway.


Reports are still sketchy but CTV3 News was made to understand that sometime after 4:00pm today Glenore Barrow was travelling from the direction of the Santa Elena Border to Corozal Town in this white car when he ran into one of BEL’s high tension posts breaking it into three portions.


Reporter Victor Castillo spoke with an eye witness who at the time of the accident was just a couple feet away.

 

Eye Witness


“I was coming like four log post at the back and when I reached the tree there was a grey vehicle coming and the white vehicle was travelling in the same direction going to Corozal. The gray vehicle actually slowdown in front of the car and when the driver of the white car tried to swerve away on the next hand side the grey vehicle swerve too an made the white vehicle hit the post and the driver did not even stop to render aid he just kept driving towards Corozal. In the white car there was someone who was actually badly injured and we took out the man stopped a vehicle and asked the driver to take the man to the hospital. For me the driver of the white car has no fault it is the driver of the gray car who as in front of him I don’t know who he is because we were unable to see the license plate. The driver of the white vehicle driving slow.


The degree of injury suffered by the driver is not yet known but what we can tell you is that he was transported to the Corozal Community Hospital to receive medical attention.
