Fatal RTA Claims the Lives of 2 Cousins

A fatal traffic accident claimed the lives of two cousins in the north. Kairo and Henry Cob, both from San Victor in Corozal, died just after midday on Sunday. The two men were on a motorcycle on the San Juan Road when they crashed into an SUV traveling in the opposite direction. That vehicle was driven by Hernan Cortez, who has since been served with a notice of intended prosecution. At the weekly press brief today, Assistant Commissioner of Police Joseph Myvett shared the details of the double fatality.

“Hernan Cortez reported to them that whilst traveling on the San Juan Road, he observed a tractor coming from the opposite direction and just before reaching him, he observed two persons on a motorcycle who overtook the tractor and collided into him. According to him, he did everything in order to avoid the accident but unfortunately the riders collided into him and were flung from the motorcycle. Upon the police’s arrival to the scene, both persons were motionless and they were identified to be Kairo Cob, eighteen-years-old and Henry Cob, twenty-four-years-old.”

 

Police say that tests will be conducted to determine if alcohol was a factor in the accident.
