An accident on the Philip Goldson Highway between miles 86 and 87 yesterday resulted in one person being transported to the Northern Regional Hospital. According to authorities though, injuries suffered by the victims were minor.
The head on collision between a green Toyota Camry and a black Toyota Four Runner occurred around 6:25 last night. Investigations have revealed that the driver of the Toyota Four Runner, 22 year old Belizean Driver Hipolito Cawich, was heading toward the Belize Northern Border when upon reaching between miles 86 and 87, a green Toyota Camry driven at the time by Altamira Resident, Luis Sosa, coming on the opposite direction, swerved directly into his lane causing the head on collision.
As a result Sosa landed on the left hand side of the road and was trapped between the steering wheel and the driver’s seat of the vehicle. In order to assist Sosa, the fire department was called in and they were able to take him out of the vehicle by using the Jaws of life.
Sosa was then taken to the Corozal Community Hospital and later transported to the Northern Regional hospital where he was admitted and kept under observation. As for Cawich, he ended about 14 feet away from the highway into the bushes. He complained of body aches and was issued with a medico legal form, treated then released.
Sosa is expected to be served with a notice of intended prosecution.
