By Breaking Belize News Staff: Several communities in the Toledo District had an unplanned power outage last night, caused by a road traffic accident involving Minister of Labour, Local Government and Rural Transformation Oscar Requena.
Last night Requena crashed into a lampost in an effort to avoid hitting a motorcyclist who had swerved into his lane while driving through Mafredi Village, sources close to Requena told Breaking Belize News (BBN).
The collision snapped the lamp post in half and totaled his government-issued vehicle; however, Requena managed to avoid serious injury.
Belize Electricity Limited (BEL) had to deploy crews to the area to restore power to more than a dozen affected communities.
