A three-way collision occurred at about 9:00 Friday night on Barrier Reef Drive in San Pedro, and two persons are hurt as a result.
The collision occurred when a motorcycle hit a bicycle, after which it slammed into a golf cart in which four people was travelling. The person riding the bicycle was hurt, and three persons from the golf cart were thrown out, causing one of the passengers to be knocked unconscious.
Harold Arthurs, office assistant at Cart Belize Golf Cart Rentals San Pedro Town, told police that he was driving a company golf cart, and three persons were with him, including his cousin, Ericka Castro, 20.
Just after they passed Crazy Canucks Restaurant’s entrance, Arthurs saw a motorcycle coming from the opposite direction, which knocked down a young boy who was riding on a bicycle. The motorcycle driver lost control of the motorcycle after that, and then the motorcycle hit the golf cart.
Arthurs reported that the three passengers travelling with him were hurled out of the gulf cart, and when Castro hit the pavement, she became unconscious.
Castro and the boy were taken to the San Pedro Polyclinic, where she later regained consciousness. They were both treated and released from the polyclinic.
Arthurs, his two friends and the motorcycle driver, escaped unhurt.
Police announced that a Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) was served to the driver of the motorcycle, Jonathan Lavastida, 23, a boat captain of the DFC area, San Pedro Town.
