There was a traffic accident in San Ignacio Town on Saturday of this past weekend, where two persons resulted with various injuries. Acting on information, San Ignacio Police visited Savannah Street in San Ignacio Town at about 4:10 am, near the Low Lying Bridge area where on arrival they saw a blue Toyota Corolla 4 door car, which had collided into the recently constructed concrete Market Wall. Trapped inside the vehicle was a male person of dark complexion, who was seated on the driver’s side in an unconscious state, and a female of clear complexion, who was seen on the passenger’s seat of the vehicle and was crying for help.

Both persons inside the vehicle had injuries all over their bodies. Initial investigations reveal that at about 4:00 am, Patrick Gordon was driving his blue Toyota Corolla from an east to west direction whilst crossing the low lying bridge from Santa Elena Town to San Ignacio Town. Unfortunately, after crossing the board bridge and onto the pavement road he lost control of the vehicle, which caused the vehicle to swerve left, directly into the solid concrete wall of the San Ignacio Market Square area. The vehicle received extensive damages to its entire front portion and to the windshield. With the assistance of the fire department, both persons were removed and transported to the San Ignacio Community Hospital for medical attention.

The passengers were later learnt to be Gardina Teck, a 23 year old Belizean domestic of Santa Elena Town and Patrick Lewis Gordon, a 34 year old Belizean laborer of Santa Elena Town, Cayo District.  Gardina Teck was seen with a broken right leg and a broken left wrist and Patrick Gordon was seen with a cut wound on his left knee cap and complained of pain all over his body.

Both accident victims appeared to be under the influence as a strong aroma of alcohol came from their breaths when they spoke. Medico forms were issued to both of them. A blood sample was requested from Patrick Gordon as he was suspected to be under the influence, but he refused in the presence of the doctor.
