A man lost his life on Tuesday in a road traffic incident on the Placencia Road. The incident occurred between miles 21 and 22. Initial reports stated that a black Ford Fusion drifted into the opposite lane while turning on a curve in the road. This reportedly caused a head-on collision with a motorcycle, driven by 41-year-old Robert Cordova. Senior Superintendent Romero stated that police have yet to confirm this, however.
Senior Supt. Hilberto Romero, Deputy Head, National Crimes Investigation Branch: “Investigations revealed that the vehicle and the motorcycle were travelling opposite directions when they collided at some point on the road. As a result the driver of the motorcycle succumbed to his injuries and he was identified as Roberto Cordova, 41 years.”
Reporter: Any indication as to who was on the wrong side of the road ?
Senior Supt. Hilberto Romero, Deputy Head, National Crimes Investigation Branch: “Well investigations will determine that thereafter. We will look at all the sketches drawn and statements recorded and that will be determined thereafter.”
