Driver escapes incineration in RTA

By Benjamin Flowers, Staff Reporter

A driver escaped being burned to death on Saturday in a mid-morning traffic accident on the George Price Highway.

At around 10:30 a.m., Robert Logan was driving his blue Ford Ranger pickup truck by mile 13 when he lost control of the vehicle and sped off the right hand side of the road. Logan was flung from the vehicle as it overturned several times off the road.

Once it came to a stop, the vehicle caught fire, and burned until there was almost nothing left of it. The Belize Fire Department was called to the scene to try and ascertain the cause of the blaze. Meanwhile there is still no word if Logan has survived his injuries.

The Reporter follow up on this story and have an update.

The road traffic accident marks the fourth for 2016, following one in the Orange Walk district, Belize district and in Cayo. All the previous accidents have been fatal.
