Cyclist injured on bridge is identified

In a follow up to a story we reported in yesterday’s newscast, police have identified the cyclist who was injured in an accident on the Bel-China Bridge as Roberto Orellano. Information is still sketchy, but it appears that the thirty-four year old Belize City resident was run over by the rear wheel of a mini-bus after his bicycle slipped on the deck of the bridge. According to the Officer in Charge of the Traffic Department, Martin Yama, the exact circumstances surrounding the accident are still not clear, but it is believed that the victim was under the influence of alcohol. Orellano remains in serious condition at Karl Heusner Memorial with head and face injuries.
