Police Officer lost life in motorcycle accident

Raphael Martinez

The four year old child was not the only person who died tragically on the highway.  A police officer lost his life after receiving a blowout on his motorcycle tire in the Corozal District on Friday.  The thirty-four year old Police Constable was injured on the head.  The police could not determine whether or not Oscar Escalante was wearing a helmet at the time of the incident.

    I feel terrible for the officer and his family, but I’m curious whether he was wearing a helmet.

    The human body can survive a lot of damage in an accident, but the head MUST be protected.
