Family of Dean Dawson Still Calling for Justice after Fatal RTA

Dean Dawson

Last Wednesday, the Director of the Government Press Office hit and killed forty-five year old mechanic Dean Dawson between miles twenty-two and twenty-three on the Phillip Goldson Highway. Dawson died on the spot in what the post mortem says was a head on collision with a burgundy government issued Isuzu Dmax driven by Dorian Pakeman. Since then, family members have been crying out for justice. Tonight, Dawson’s older sister Diana Stevenson is requesting the D.P.P. to look at all factors that caused the accident.


Voice of: Diana Stevenson, Sister of Deceased

“I am asking the D.P.P. to visit the scene, view the tire tracks still very visibly in the middle of the left hand side of the road and use the completed autopsy before making her judgment; despite some urine sample that was produced two days after the accident or any blood sample from my dead brother that would definitely show whatever is needed to put him six feet deeper. It is my understanding that the autopsy went on to state that it was a head on collision but I notice that was not mentioned.  I also understand that the vehicle is now in Belmopan. Mister Pakeman has received the red carpet treatment from the beginning which is no surprise. No matter how far Mister Pakeman goes to walk free, the one thing he cannot run from is his conscience which he will have to live with for the rest of his life. Pakeman maintains that Dean was in the middle and swerved in his lane, being the right. Now if Dean went to the right in the blink of an eye, at approximately eight miles per hour, why is the passenger side tire tracks in the middle of the left lane and continue on to the left until it stop over two hundred feet from where you first brakes. Dead on impact, clearly shows high speed. Maybe we need to ask a primary school student to explain because as a driver, driving at even fifty miles per hour, I cannot be driving on the right hand side and suddenly swerve to the right and still end up smack dead in the middle of the left lane without a trace of even crossing the middle? So then, why wasn’t Dean hit in the right lane or in the center of the road if you were in fact in your lane—the right hand side from Orange Walk heading to Ladyville? This is Belize, not England.”
