According to the official report, 28 year old Julio Castillo of a Mahogany Street address reported to police that around 4am on Sunday morning, he made a taxi run to Enramada Hotel then decided to head home. Upon reaching the pedestrian ramp in front of Home Protector Insurance Company, a vehicle pulled up behind him and blinded him with his lights.
Castillo reports that upon reaching the junction to Liberty Avenue, the vehicle in question drove up beside him and cut him off causing him to swerve to the extreme right onto the sidewalk and slammed into the cement fence on the property of Ernesto Reyes. Authorities say the impact caused the vehicle to swerve back onto the road in an East to West position activating the air bag which flung Castillo through the windshield and onto the ground.
The grey and white Sephia car’s front portion was extensively damaged. Castillo complained of pain to the body but was treated and released from the Northern Regional Hospital.
