By Humphrey Carter TEN people were injured, one seriously, in two separate accidents yesterday morning in Majorca. The first happened before dawn along the old Sineu road near the Puntiro cross roads. For reasons still unconfirmed, a Peugoet 206 with five occupants and travelling in the direction of Sineu, suddenly veered off the road and flipped over just after 5.30am.

Police suspect the driver may have fallen asleep although they are continuing with their inquiries into the accident which happened on a straight stretch of the road.

All the occupants were injured and were taken to three different Palma hospitals.
The most seriously injured, a 19-year-old male, was taken to Son Dureta where he was yesterday being treated for head injuries.
The other four were treated for minor injuries.
The second accident happened at 11am along the Alcudia to Arta road. According to the traffic police yesterday afternoon, a Renault Megane skidded on a bend and collided with a 4x4 travelling in the opposite direction.

The driver of the Megane was being treated for a fractured shoulder last night and his wife for whiplash, their four-year-old child escaped unhurt.
The two occupants of the Suzuki 4x4 involved in the accident also suffered minor injuries all were taken to Manacor hospital.
Police suspect that the Megane skidded on mud found on the bend although investigations into both accidents have yet to be competed.

Two hurt in ultra glider crash

TWO men were injured, one seriously, yesterday when the ultra glider they were flying crashed into a tree in Arta.
Guardia Civil sources said that the cause of the accident was engine failure and that the front seat passenger suffered the worst injuries.
Arta fire fighters cut the two men free from the wreckage before the two men were taken to Muro hospital from where the seriously injured passenger was rushed to Son Dureta in Palma.

Police said the accident happened at 1pm when the engine appears to have cut out with the ultra glider hitting the tree before the pilot could take any kind of evasive action.
