ORANJESTAD-A cruel accident happened on Friday night at around 10:30pm at the intersection of
Mahuma. The driver of a red vehicle with three passengers on board lost control of his vehicle and hit hard
against the metal highway barrier. The entire passenger side of the vehicle including the highway metal
barrier was destroyed.

The accident left four people including the driver injured two of which in grave condition. The first police
unit at the scene discovered one person on the ground at a distance from the car. Two injured
passengers were found badly stuck inside of the car. The fourth passenger was lightly injured and could
walk out of the car. The highway was closed down by police for investigation. Four ambulances were
sent to transport the injured to the hospital.

The fire department sent two fire trucks to help cut the car and release the two passengers who were
badly stuck. One of the passengers stuck lost his entire arm at the scene as a consequence of the
collision. Both of the passengers lost much blood.

The hospital has later informed that one of the gravely injured passengers lost his life. The three
passengers and the driver were Dutchmen employed at the Dutch military camp in Savaneta. The number
of fatalities in Aruba’s traffic now stands at 4 for 2012.
