Bell Block has had it’s 3rd major Car Accident in the past few days, this time, again the Black Spot strikes on the Corner of Mangati and State Highway 3 (Devon Road). The major Accident happened around 5.55pm between 2 cars, who somehow didn’t manage to block the road when the cars came to rest. Fire Engines,Ambulances and a heap of Police Cars attended the accident.
We happened to be on the spot, and helped out until the reinforcements arrived. The Police commented the major factor that no one recently has been killed in Bell Block in these types of accident;s is due to the 80KM speed limit. People would be dead if they were traveling at 100KM. There were no serious injuries, but one of the drivers needed attention from the Ambulance Crews.
