    Always thought those vehicles were pieces of junk. Remember what happened to Fonseca Jr.? Also, how fast was he going to lose control, maybe getting an .. or .. that caused it? Hmmm.

  2. Prado driver says:

    why people always talk bs and they know they’re one of them.

  3. Just so you know... says:

    I Have Awaken: STFU you have no right to make an assumption like that. It is suspected that he suffered a medical episode. How about you keep your opinions to yourself. Someone lost their life and their family and friends do not need to see know-nothings like yourself speculate the worst. The only kind of person who would reach a conclusion like the one you have suggested is the kind of filthy and uncouth person who would engage in that sort of behaviour themselves. You should be ashamed.

    Franco Gentile was a good person who loved belize and not only a business man. He had chosen to live and die in belize. I think that it’s simplistic to talk about him in “news five”.

    bon voyage Franco!
