One man escaped serious injuries after he lost control of a red Ford cane truck he was driving and overturned. The incident occurred around four this afternoon about two miles on the bypass before reaching the entrance to the Tower Hill Factory. The individual identified so far as Roberto Huchim from San Jose Village was driving towards the factory when he apparently lost control of the vehicle that was packed with sugar cane. Huchim overturned and sustained injuries but police have not been able to verify the extent of these injuries. A motorist traveling on the bypass stopped and rendered aid taking Huchim to the Northern Regional Hospital. We understand that he has been released. The incident caused traffic flow to stand still for several minutes in both directions as truck drivers came to render aid and remove the truck from the road.
There was another minor traffic accident that took place between four thirty and five this evening at the curve by the Come and Go gas station. We understand that a red Toyota pickup truck heading towards Belize collided into the right front portion of a maroon Ford van. Two people were traveling in the pickup truck. The passenger in the vehicle sustained a broken right thumb. At least three people were traveling in the van but no one was hurt.
