Giovanni Villafranco, a resident of Dangriga Town, Stann Creek District, was killed after he was involved in a road traffic incident on Sunday, just before 6pm. Villafranco was driving a motorcycle with another passenger when he collided into the passenger side of a 4Runner. According to the Commissioner of Police, Chester Williams, the vehicle was driven by a police officer who is not fully cooperating in the investigation.

Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police

Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police: “I know that yesterday in the evening there was an accident on the Hummingbird Highway near Dangriga involving Corporal Elton Elijio, he was driving a vehicle and he may have knocked down two persons who were on a motorcycle. One of the persons on the cycle received serious injuries and was rushed to the hospital but on the way to the hospital he died. Mr.Elijio is currently in police custody and I believe that he should be charged by the end of the day today where that accident is concerned.”

Reporter: Reports are that he was intoxicated.

Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police: “Well I know for a fact that he refuses to give any specimen and so he has also been charged for failing to provide specimen.”

Elijio has since been charged with manslaughter by negligence, causing death by careless conduct, drove motor vehicle without due care and attention, drove motor vehicle without a valid driver’s license, drove unlicensed motor vehicle, failure to confirm to a traffic sign, negligent grievous harm, and failure to provide specimen. He was granted bail in the sum of $10,000. The matter is adjourned until July 6.
