Another Death and Injury in Separate Accidents in South

Andres Philip Diego Sr.

There were two separate road traffic accidents in the south and one claimed the life of a fifty-two-year-old Pomona villager. Andres Philip Diego Senior perished after he was knocked down between miles ten and eleven on the Hummingbird Highway. Police say that sometime around six-thirty on Sunday evening Jerry O’hara David was driving from the direction of Dangriga to Belize City when he knocked down and killed Diego who was riding a bicycle.  Upon arrival on the scene just before seven that night, Diego was observed lying face down in the middle of the road and his bike was on the right hand side.  Police say that David reported that the bright, flashing light of oncoming vehicle impaired his vision, which caused him to hit Diego. Diego was pronounced dead on arrival at the Southern Regional Hospital.  Another RTA has left a man with head and body injuries also in the south. This morning, around seven-thirty, thirty-seven-year-old Edwin Lopez of Alta Vista was driving his truck exiting Dangriga and whilst on the George Price Highway; Jose Francisco Morales rode out of a nearby street onto the Highway. Lopez told police that his truck collided into the bike, which caused Morales to receive injuries to the arm, and a cut wound to the back of the head. He was treated and released from the southern regional hospital.
