53 Year-Old-Man Knocked Down Near Orange Walk Toll Booth

The second accident occurred on the Phillip Goldson Highway near the Orange Walk toll booth. Fifty-three year old mechanic Bernabe Roberts was riding his bicycle on the road when he was hit by a vehicle heading towards Orange Walk. Roberts died on the spot from the massive impact. It is believed that Roberts was under the influence of alcohol and swerved onto the road, but Police are not speculating until the investigation is complete.
