TWO men are at the San Fernando General Hospital after an accident at Mosquito Creek on Thursday morning.
Police said they were told at around 7 am that a white Nissan B15 collided with a trailer truck, causing heavy traffic.
The driver of the car, Terrance Benjamin, is at hospital in critical condition with a head injury while his father John Benjamin is in stable condition.
Both men live at Short Street, La Brea.
John sells mangoes at the San Fernando Market.
The truck driver has been identified as Radish Jonathan.
Police said Terrance may have fallen asleep while driving.
Drivers were redirected onto the old road to alleviate traffic caused by the accident on the recently opened road which does not have a shoulder.
More as this becomes available.
