American Detained for Causing Death of Elderly Belizean in Cayo

An elderly citizen was knocked down and killed this morning as he rode his cycle in Buena Vista village, Cayo District. Just before six-thirty a.m., twenty-year-old Jessica Miller, a U.S. citizen, told police that she was driving a SUV on the Buena Vista Road heading towards Spanish Lookout in a heavily foggy area when she saw a motorcycle in front of her. Miller said she tried to avoid hitting the cycle, but wasn’t able to do so and the left rear side of the vehicle collided into the cycle. The rider of the cycle, eighty-year-old Salvadoran national Jose Francisco Ayala, sustained injuries to the body and was pronounced dead on arrival at the San Ignacio Community Hospital. Miller has been served with a NIP.
