Benque Viejo del Carmen Police responded last Friday to an accident at Mile Seven on the ‘Hydro Road’ in the Cayo District. Police were called to the scene of a collision between a van and an 18 wheeler truck, which was coming from Arenal; leaving some eight persons injured.

Benque Police have thus far recorded a statement from a male driver of the truck, whose outlook was favorable and as a result came out of the hospital on Monday of this week. Police are now awaiting a report from the driver of the van, who was more seriously injured, while being accompanied by six other Belize Electric Company Limited BECOL co-workers.

“At present all occupants (of the van) are at the hospital and we are continuing our investigation”, reports Dinsdale Thompson, Officer in Charge of Benque Viejo Police.
