There was an early morning traffic accident near Cotton Tree Village on the George Price Highway at mile 42 and 43. The incident involved a car and a blue bird passenger bus. The driver of the passenger bus was Omar Barahona, a resident of Cotton Tree Village. Sometime around 7 o’clock on Monday morning, he was travelling from St. Matthew’s Village enroute to Belmopan and when he reached the village of Cotton Tree, a black car was coming in the opposite direction. Barahona reports that the small car suddenly swerved into his lane and collided head on into his bus. As a result, the conductress that was travelling along with him fell off the bus and received minor injuries.
