“Belmopan police continue to investigate five separate accidents that occurred this past weekend. As a result, four persons were injured and one died. The latest one was last night sometime around 8:48 where Belmopan police were called out to an area between mile 55 and 56 on the Humming Bird Highway. Upon arrival officers saw a dark blue Toyota Hilux on the highway when travelling from a north to south direction with damages to its front portion. In front of the Toyota Hilux was a black motorcycle extensively damaged. Investigations revealed that the driver of the pickup truck, Kevin Petzold, a Belizean Civil Engineer was driving from the direction of the roundabout en route to the mall when that unfortunate incident occurred. Love News spoke to Domingo Delgado the brother of the deceased who explained what he saw.”

“Last night when I came from Camalote to Belmopan I came behind my brother in law and he came on his motorcycle and when we got in front of the Mall, a Hilux came from Belmopan to the round about to go into the shopping mall. The man didn’t stop. His girlfriend was back there and she broke her foot because she was travelling with him, and her back is hurting her. That man has to help me with all of this because he is supposed to stop and he didn’t stop so he is supposed to help me.
