Woman Dies in Tragic RTA

A traffic accident has claimed the life of a housewife from the south. On Friday afternoon, fifty-five year old Nelly Lopez from Steadfast Village tragically died when she was flung from the pan of pickup truck driven by her nineteen year old son, Edgar Lopez. The accident happened in the Stann Creek District, between miles sixteen and seventeen. The brakes of the pickup truck that Edgar was driving failed and in an attempt to avoid a collision, he swerved causing his mother to fall off the vehicle. Nelly was transported to the Western Regional Hospital but did not survive the accident.
