Will Truck Driver Be Served Notice Following Tuesday’s Fatal RTA?

Theresa Lyn Meuers

On Tuesday, an accident claimed the life of a U.S. tourist and left another hospitalized. The accident, which involved a small SUV and a tow head truck, collided around eleven on Tuesday morning at the entrance of the Jaguar Paw road around mile thirty-seven on the George Price Highway. The driver of the eighteen wheeler truck which was carrying oranges, Miguel Arriaza, and the tour guide driving the SUV, thirty year old Leon Rodriguez, have both been served with notices of intended prosecution. Fifty five year old Theresa Lyn Meuers, who was traveling in the SUV, died as a result of head and body injuries while undergoing treatment at the Western Regional Hospital. Her companion, Samuel Douglas Schulte, suffered serious injuries and is hospitalized at the K.H.M.H. The couple was on a Valentine’s weekend cruise and was heading to Jaguar Paw when they met in the accident. Their driver, Rodriguez, told police that he was turning to go in to the Jaguar Paw cutoff when he was tail ended by the tow head truck and he lost control of the vehicle. The truck driver wasn’t injured, but his sideman, Emil Lisbey, received a cut to the head and he was treated and released.
