A truck driver employed with Wafiq’s Transport is now warded at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex in Mount Hope after a crash on Sunday morning in Chase Village.

According to a report, at about 6.15 am the truck was in motion when close to the triangle a blue Suzuki SUV crashed head on into the truck.

The truck’s driver only identified as Wendell sustained serious injuries to both his legs.

The driver’s condition of the SUV was not known, however, police officers responding on the scene said a breathalyzer test was expected to be conducted on the driver, who was driving a company vehicle belonging to Amka Woodworking Company in Cunupia.

An official at Wafiq’s Transport said Wendell reported to the yard at Orange Field Road in Carapichaima where he “washed and cleaned his truck in preparations for today’s work etc. He is very enthusiastic about his job and now he is damaged but thank God for his life.”

Investigations are continuing.
