There were two traffic accidents reported in Belize City on Friday morning, within an hour of each other, on both major highways. The first took place in the vicinity of the Haulover Bridge on the Philip Goldson Highway around 11:00 a.m. when a Ramos Bus travelling to Belize City crashed head-on into an oncoming vehicle. Passengers aboard the bus sustained several injuries but none fatal and were taken to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. Owner of Ramos Bus, Bert Ramos, told another media house that according to witnesses on the scene, his driver was not to blame, that he was trying to prevent the accident but the vehicle was swerving too much and wound up running into him. Four passengers from the bus are reported to still be hospitalized.
The other accident took place around 12:00 noon on the George Price Highway in the vicinity of Lords’ Ridge Cemetery. Reports are scantier for this one but we understand that Rigoberto Itch, originally from Big Falls, Toledo, perished in that accident. The accident took place just down the road from where Frank Robinson was killed a few weeks ago.
