Accident leaves one child dead and another hospitalized

There was a terrible traffic accident this afternoon immediately in front of the Belizean Chinese Fast Food restaurant on Cemetery Road. A white van hit two school children, one died on the spot when his head was crushed by the vehicle. His sibling was injured and has been hospitalized at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. The driver of the truck, who witnesses say may have been intoxicated, was apparently heading downtown when he reportedly lost control of the van and ran into the sidewalk where the two school children were standing. Onlookers gathered at the site of the accident and the driver of the vehicle felt the wrath of bystanders. The children’s mother fainted at the scene and also had to be rushed to the hospital.  We will have more details on this story in Thursday’s newscast.

    There is so much drinking going on Belize. In my village I see men early in the morning guzzling alcohol., then they get in their vehicle and head to the city. This is so sad for that mother especially to loose a child in a season that should be jouous.
