Man critically injured in car accident

A road traffic incident has left a Cayo resident critical.  Just after seven o’clock last night a collision occurred between a trailer truck and a sedan. 

A road traffic incident has left a Cayo resident critical.  Just after seven o’clock last night a collision occurred between a trailer truck and a sedan.  Reports are that the Nissan Altima sedan, driven by 33-year-old, Ernesto Lewis was heading east towards Ontario Village.  Upon its approach to the area known as the Z Curve, an oncoming white trailer truck lost control and collided into Lewis.  The truck was being driven by 22-year-old Rafael Johan Servando Vasquez of Benque Viejo del Carmen Town.  Cayo Correspondent Fem Cruz was on the scene last night and interviewed a witness.

A traffic incident last night in the village of Tea Kettle involving a towhead and a car left Ernesto Lewis Jr., a resident of Ontario Village in a critical condition. Love News spoke to Marty Mendez the first person to arrive at the scene who explained what he knew.

Marty Mendez, First Responder: “Well like I told you I heard the noise it was dark already but early around seven I heard the knock and I came outside and I saw the truck over the road-  I didn’t see the car until I came on the road. When I reached the car the guy was still breathing so right after I reached there another vehicle pulled up and another guy came out to assist me and then we tried to haul open the door but we couldn’t get it open so a van came and we tied a chain to it and popped it off and that is how we managed to get the man out and then the ambulance came and took him.”

Reporter: His condition ? What can you tell us ?

Marty Mendez, First Responder:  “The man was breathing but he was not conscious it was like he was knocked out. Well right now the road is messed up because the road has a lot of loose gravel on the road so I think if they have a sweeper to sweep off the road and put a bump to try hold them down to not run so hard and that would slow down the traffic accident much more. I just came out and I saw two of them knocked head and head so I’m not sure if it’s them or the road.”

The incident had traffic delayed for up to two hours.
