By Benjamin Flowers: Police Constable Jose Cambranes, who was in a motorcycle accident in Placencia on Sunday, is making a steady recovery according to the Belize Police Department.

Cambranes, who is attached to Maya Beach Police, was riding his motorcycle in the vicinity of Naia Resort when he collided with a scooter in front of him being ridden at the time by 22-year-old Damian Avilez.

Cambranes received several injuries and was transported to the Placencia Polyclinic, and later transferred to the Southern Regional Hospital, where he was listed as being in critical condition.

Head of Communications for the Office of the Commissioner of Police, ASP Fitzroy Yearwood, said that he has been following up with the officer’s conditions since the incident.

“I know that he has regained consciousness and is communicating with the officers investigating this unfortunate incident,” Yearwood said.

Yearwood noted that the collision occurred because PC Cambranes tried to overtake Avilez, though Avilez had indicated that he would be turning left.

“I must state that the other rider 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 said that he had fled the scene. He did not,” Yearwood added.
