Cab knocks down man then flips over in Belmopan

There was an accident in the Capital on Sunday night. Sometime after eight p.m., a taxi with license plate number D-00116 crashed into a man in the Tiger Town area. Residents in the area said the cab driver was speeding when he hit the man, and though he applied the brakes, the car skidded and toppled over into a drain at the corner of Guanacaste Park Street. The man, by all accounts was seriously injured. An ambulance took the injured man to the Western Regional Hospital and the police officers detained the driver. Residents eventually turned the car into an upright position. Strangely enough, the incident was not reported in the police blotter so we will not reveal his name since it hasn’t been confirmed.

    Morale of story: in Belize, no matter who you are, its what connections you have. The poor victim, probably only has consanguinity connections down south. The media was there, and apparently a whole leap ah people, so lets see what comes out of this.
