Several traffic incidents occurred over holiday weekend

Over the long weekend several other road traffic incidents which, fortunately were not fatal, occurred. We begin with one which happened in Orange Walk Town. Police there say that 22-year-old Marquito Moguel did not provide a sample for medical testing following a road traffic incident on December 23. Orange Walk police were called out to Otro Benque Road where they saw a black Honda Motorcycle and a Hyundai Tucson SUV. It was a head-on collision which fortunately resulted in no fatalities. Driving the motorcycle at the time was 22-year-old Pedro Romero while Moguel was behind the steering wheel of the SUV. Romero received minor injuries and was released after receiving treatment. On the other hand, Moguel was charged with ‘failed to provide specimen’. Belize City Police believe that 32-year-old Guatemalan National Hector Nicholas Choc was hit by a vehicle. The hit and run incident happened at mile 9 on the George Price Highway at around 7:15 pm on December 23. Police officers were called out to the scene where Choc was seen on the ground with bruises on several parts of his body. He was taken to the KHMH where he is listed in a critical but stable condition. Police say he is on a ventilator. In Orange Walk, two women were injured when the silver Toyota Tacoma they were in flipped several times on Christmas Eve. At around 4:40 Orange Walk police were called out to an area between miles 60 and 61 of the Phillip Goldson Highway where they saw the vehicle extensively damaged. Inside the vehicle were 69-year-old US National Sherry Jones and 61-year-old Mary Turner. They were on their way to Corozal Town from Orange Walk Town when Jones lost control of the vehicle. The women were taken to the Northern Regional Hospital where they were treated.
