By Benjamin Flowers: Police Constable Jose Cambranes, who had a motorcycle accident in Placencia on Sunday, is recovering steadily according to the Belize Police Department.
Cambranes, who is attached to Maya Beach Police, was riding his motorbike in the vicinity of Naia Resort when he collided with a scooter in front of him, driven at the time by 22-year-old Damian Avilez.
Cambranes suffered multiple injuries and was transported to Placencia Polyclinic and then transferred to Southern Regional Hospital, where he was listed as being in critical condition.
The Office of the Police Commissioner’s communications chief, ASP Fitzroy Yearwood, said he has been monitoring the officer’s conditions since the incident.
“I know he has regained consciousness and is communicating with officers investigating this unfortunate incident,” Yearwood said.
Yearwood noted that the collision happened because PC Cambranes attempted to pass Avilez, although Avilez indicated he would turn left.
“I have to say the other driver of the other motorbike provided assistance and got a vehicle to help transport the officer to the polyclinic. I just wanted to clear that up because people were saying he fled the places. He didn’t,” Yearwood added.
