Screen_Shot_2016-01-25_at_6.45.38_PMThree vehicles were involved in a traffic mishap yesterday on the Philip Goldson International Highway.

The mishap occurred around 6:30p.m when 38 year old Guinea Grass Village resident Maximo Jimenez was heading towards Corozal Town from the Santa Elena Border in his Red and White Ford Ranger Pick-up, when upon reaching between miles 84 and 85 on the Phillip Goldson Highway he collided with a Red Chrysler Van travelling in the opposite direction.


Accompanying Jimenez at the time of the incident was 25 year old Marla Quetzal and two other passengers. As for the van, it was being driven by 27 year old Belizean labourer of San Narciso Village Corozal, Artemio Patt.

According to Jimenez, the van drifted into his lane and to avoid a head on collision he swerved to the right side of the highway but still did not manage to prevent the impact.


As a result of the impact the van ended on the middle of the highway and this is when a Green Wingle Pick-Up Truck, driven at the time by 39 year old Belizean Security Officer, Eric Emanuel Griffith of Corozal Town, who was heading towards Santa Elena Border collided into the rear of the van.


Jimenez received injuries to his left eye, abrasion to the left side of face and left arm while Marla Quetzal received injuries to the left side of her face and the left side of her fore head. Emanuel Griffith received injuries to his lower lip and scrapes on the right knee and right elbow while Patt received injuries to his left arm, elbow and head.

Police have not disclosed who will be charged for the accident.
