Vehicle collisions on the Philip Goldson Highway and in San Pedro

Two persons are alive but hurt after they were involved in two separate motorcycle collisions in the city, and in San Pedro.

In the Belize City, Fredrick Evans, 68, of Ladyville, a teacher at the Belize High School, collided with the left side of a pickup truck and as a result, suffered a large cut on the knee, and in San Pedro, Jose Soto, 46, crashed into the left side of a golf cart. He was not seriously injured, but both vehicles suffered damage.

In Belize City, at about 5:30 Friday evening, Onofre R. Vellos, 31, a tour guide operator and resident of Belama Phase 2, Belize City, was driving his white Ford E350 van with license plates BCC-44049, and upon exiting the Brodies parking lot, he took a left onto the Philip Goldson Highway, and collided with a Honda motorcycle, license plates BZ-M0408, driven at the time by Fredrick Evans, who was travelling to Ladyville from the city.

The front left side bumper of the motor vehicle was hit, and as a result, Evans was thrown off the motorcycle, causing him to sustain a large cut wound on the knee.

A Notice of Intended Prosecution was served on Onofre Vellos, said police.

The other incident occurred on Pescador Drive in front of a hardware store. The driver of the golf cart, Bryan Grajalez, 27 of San Pedro, told police that at about 5:10 that evening he was travelling towards Jew Fish Street, on the left side of the road, when a motorcycle collided with the left front side of the cart.

The cart suffered damage to its left front bumper, left front hub cap, left wheel braces and left front lights. The motorcycle’s front guard, right front indicator light and rear light were damaged. Luckily, none of the drivers was harmed by the accident.

The incident was settled between the two men and no court action will be taken against anyone.
