A fifteen year old female was rushed to the Northern Regional Hospital late this evening following a road traffic accident on the Phillip Goldson Highway. The teen was traveling with her grandparents Manuel Lorenzo and his wife Nora Lorenzo who are residents of Trial Farm Village in the Orange Walk District. They were headed in the direction of Orange Walk in a red four door pickup truck when around 5:15 pm, just past the Mameyal Curve, they collided into a trailer carrying lumber. According to a man who was traveling in the vehicle that was pulling the trailer, he and his son in law Esner Campus were heading to San Narciso Village after buying lumber from Shipyard.
The trailer they were pulling got unhooked and strayed into the path of the Lorenzos who were traveling in the opposite direction. Manuel Lorenzo was unable to avoid the collision and hit the trailer head on, coming to a stop to the side of the road. We were made to understand that both adults did not seem to have sustained injuries but the fifteen year old girl was bleeding from her face but we are still to verify the extent of her injuries. Campus immediately took all three persons to the NRH for treatment.
