Government vehicle involved in traffic accident

One accident that did not make it onto the police blotter took place at the corner of Faber’s Road and the Western Highway involving a government vehicle that is believed to have been speeding into the City. The new government vehicle, an Isuzu pick-up assigned to the Ministry of Trade and Investment was coming into the City at about four o’clock in the morning when it slammed into a bridge and overturned. The driver of the vehicle is allegedly a relative of a Belize City government minister. There were other occupants in the government vehicle who were all pulled out of the extensively damaged vehicle and their health condition is not known. The police arrived soon after to process the scene and, according to witnesses, the license plate of the vehicle BMO-0043 was quickly removed.  At least seven beer bottles and cans as well as a government log book, fuel invoices and an invoice in the name of Roximae Williams were strewn in the area where the vehicle made impact. Even though it was the crack of dawn, a number of persons came out to the scene of the accident which left the government vehicle totally damaged.  A number of questions are left unanswered such as what was a government vehicle doing on the highway at that time of the morning? Is the driver a government employee? And why were the government license plates removed?

    Here is an obvious case of misappropriation, misuse of taxpayer-owned property. It’s a vehicle theft, and the Minister who approved it should resign. Barrow should demand it.

    This is very heartbreaking…why… Because that shows that Belize seems like its been run like a country that has no rules no laws every body do as they please like a bunch of wild turkies. It’s a shame that a quiet and peaceful country like Belize has become one of the most feared countries in the world. How sad. We need leaders with moral values that has the ability to govern our nation.

    the worst of it is the police is in on the cover up, if they don’t report the case with the license plate # and the driver then they are in on the cover up, let Faber and Zaldivar explain that. not so squeaky clean like to portray, as corupt and conniving as the rest, and Faber says he is a Church Man..
