Just before two this afternoon, traffic was backed up at the Phillip Godson Highway after a white Ford Ranger pickup truck heading towards Orange Walk lost control and turned over. According to a police officer at the scene, the driver of the vehicle, Fernando Chan, from Ranchito Village, Corozal, was making his way back from Belmopan when his pickup truck suffered a blowout and he lost control of the vehicle which turned over on mile 33 on the Phillip Goldson highway.
According to the officer, there were approximately ten other persons in the vehicle at the time of the accident, including minors. While there were no fatalities, all passengers seemed to be suffering from serious face and body injuries and were transported to the Northern Regional Hospital and the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. We will have more information on this story tomorrow.
