Just before news time last night there was a traffic mishap near the Mameyal curve on the Philip Goldson Highway between a passenger bus and a cargo truck.
Reports from the bus driver indicate that the bus, belonging to UK’s bus service, was traveling towards Corozal when a pickup truck traveling in the same direction attempted to overtake them as they approached the infamous Mameyal curve. Things then took a potentially deadly turn as the pickup truck veered into the lane of an incoming cargo truck traveling in the opposite direction. In an effort to avoid a head-on collision with the pickup truck the truck driver took a sudden turn, hitting the bus on the left side. While the bus was carrying approximately thirty passengers no one was injured.
