John Doe dies after hit & run on highway

The accident that killed the elderly couple was not the only traffic fatality. An unidentified man was killed in a hit and run incident on the outskirts of Belize City on Friday night.  After ten p.m., the cops headed towards miles two and three on the Northern Highway where they found the body of a fair complexion, Hispanic male person lying on the highway.  The body was observed with abrasions to the right elbow, left foot, a cut wound to the left hip. Initial investigations revealed that the victim was hit by a motor vehicle, which was travelling toward Belize City. The hit and run happened just past the Bella Vista junction. The unidentified victim was transported to the K.H.M.H. morgue where he was pronounced dead at eleven-fifty p.m.  Police are asking for public assistance in identifying the body or the vehicle involved in the crime.

    BELIZE highways need ……….SHOULDERS………………….. where PEOPLE CAN WALK SAFELY…. .. and PEOPLE WITH CAR TROUBLE can PULL OVER.

    MINISTRY of TRANSPORTATION needs to EDUCATE PEDESTRIANS and DRIVERS about TRAVELING AT NITE.

    Is some one keeping a count on the number of persons killed on this stretch of the road. we may be able to make it to Guiness world record for deadliest highway. It is a highway in the middle of a residential area. how many more must die for the GOB to take heed and do something.

    Someone also needs to arrest all those sprang heads who keep walking for no reason (other than to spot what they can steal) at all hours everyday. Many times, I have had to blow them for walking not on the side liek everyone else, but 3 feet into the highway. I have also had to swerve into incoming traffic because of these idiots-dogs have better sense and understand what a horn blow means-they just walk oblivious to cars, horns and danger-then some poor hosuewife hits one, and its such a big deal-good riddance- To all you working ladies who must travel daily with these dangers, I say if you have to choose between hitting one of these idiots and swerving into a bus or oil truck barrelling down the highway endangering your life and possibly the kids in the car with you, you know who should get hit instead. The only sad part is that the other spaced out morons dont read the news or know that their colleague just got hit so for them too, its just a matter of time.

    I agree with the need for sidewalks, wider roads & also dividers in this area. But d, I used to live in an undesirable neighborhood & to get out of there, I worked days & went to school at night. When I missed the last bus that stopped 3 blocks from my house, I had to walk over a mile & often walked in the streets so that I would at least have a running start should some idiot step out of the shadows intent on harming me, While Belama may not be an undesirable area, we cannot lose sight of the violence & state of fear that many Belizeans are living in. It is possible he was neither cracked out or drunk.

    The problem is that successive governments have sold all the road reserve on the northern highway so the little space where pedestrians walk is so close to the road.

    What Belize calls a “highway” is not an actual highway. Its a road. Our roads need white/yellow lines, reflectors and better lighting.
