At around two this afternoon, there was a road traffic incident on the George Price Highway in Hattieville Village, Belize District. A burgundy Mitsubishi Galant was being driven by twenty six year old Steve Arden Banner when he reportedly lost control of the vehicle, flipped, hitting a lamp post, subsequently causing power failure in the area. Love news was on scene and spoke to Sergeant Shane Ciego of the Hattiville Substation who gave us details.

Police were informed by the driver that he was alone in the vehicle when the incident occurred. However, Love News spoke to an eyewitness who told us that two other occupants a female and another male were in the vehicle and fled the scene before police arrived. The eyewitness said she took the girl into her home because she wanted to wash off. Police are continuing investigations.
