City Doctor Dies in Traffic Accident Down South
A fatal road traffic accident was reported sometime after one-thirty this afternoon near mile nine on the Stann Creek Valley Road. Late this evening, police confirmed that the well-known physical therapist Rubia Analicia Briceño lost her life in the collision. News Five understands that the doctor was en route to visiting with a patient when the vehicle driven by thirty-one-year-old Leon Peters crashed head-on into a white pickup truck belonging to Emerald Groves Limited. The extensively damaged vehicle speaks to the gravity of the impact. According to police, the driver of the Toyota Hilux pickup was parked near the Citrus Growers Association compound when Peters attempted to overtake the vehicle. We understand that Peters was the only person wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident. The caregiver was seated in the front of the vehicle next to the driver when she was flung a distance of about ten feet upon impact. Shortly after five o’clock this evening, we contacted Briceno’s husband who told us that he was on his way to the Southern Regional Hospital to identify the body. Both Peters and Luis Tzul have been served with notices of intended prosecution.
