A Life-Saving Procedure

Bumps protect the driveway to Diospi Suyana

August 2013:  Dr. Ursula Buck wants to turn her car left towards the driveway of the hospital.  At that moment, a truck trying to pass her crashes into her car, spinning it off the road.  She ends up sandwiched between the truck and the sign of the hospital.  Dr. Buck only suffers a scare, but her car is a total loss.

Protection in dire need

A few months earlier, another accident happened at this same spot.  A drunk driver rammed into the back the John family car.  Since the drunk driver was not wearing a seatbelt, his head hit the windshield and he had to be quickly taken to the hospital Emergency.

Hopefully these sad incidents are now over.  On either side of the driveway to the mission hospital, the city administration has installed cement speed bumps.  Instead of passing by at 55 mph, the trucks can now pass through the danger zone at only walking speed.

We are grateful for the tremendous improvement to the safety of our road.
