Frontal collision

Five minutes later, around 20 p.m., the police telephone exchange received a new call informing them that a motorist was trapped in his vehicle following a head-on collision with another car not far from the Indigo roundabout (the road to the mountain to get to Philipsburg, after Cole Bay, editor's note).

The investigation will have to determine the exact causes of this spectacular accident.

The firefighters, who arrived quickly on the scene, managed to extract the victim from his vehicle. She received first aid at the scene before being evacuated to Sint Maarten Medical Center in serious but stable condition. _AF
