PHILIPSBURG:--- On Friday, March 17, 2023, around 5:50 p.m., central dispatch received several reports of an accident in the Oyster-pond area where two persons were seriously injured after being thrown from a four-wheeler.
Police patrol and ambulance personnel were directed to the location on the road leading to Oyster pond.
Preliminary investigation at the scene revealed that the driver of the Quad lost control of the vehicle as they headed toward the Oyster-Pond border. This caused the vehicle to veer all the way to the left and collide with the roadside embankment, causing both passengers to be thrown into the concrete water drain on the side of the road.
Both the passenger and driver were severely injured with injuries to their head and lower body. They were treated at the scene and were subsequently rushed to the St.Maarten Medical center in critical condition. The investigation into the accident is ongoing.
