Policeman critical after traffic accident

A police officer injured in a traffic accident on Tuesday afternoon lies in critical condition at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. Twenty-one year old Leroy Kerr was off duty when the Mazda he was driving collided with a Mitsubishi Montero near mile fifty-one on the Western Highway. The other driver, Henry Barrera, a Guatemalan missionary, reportedly fled the scene. P.C. Kerr sustained a broken leg and internal injuries and was taken to the Belmopan hospital and later transferred to the K.H.M.H. Today Barrera was arrested and charged with driving without due care and attention, failing to keep to the right lane, and failing to stop and render aid. He was granted bail and is scheduled to appear in the Belmopan Magistrate’s Court tomorrow.
