RTA kills husband, lands wife in hospital

Just after seven on Wednesday night, there was a fatal traffic mishap on the Phillip Goldson Highway. Joaquin Villamil and his wife Julissa were travelling between miles fourteen and fifteen, when Joaquin lost control of the Isuzu trooper they were traveling in. The Orange Walk residents were heading from their home in Carmelita Village to Belmopan when the vehicle overturned and flipped several times. Joaquin was reportedly flung from the vehicle and died after the vehicle came to a stop on top of him. Passersby managed to remove the vehicle from atop him and paramedics arrived shortly after to pronounce him dead. Fortunately, Julissa sustained injuries to her legs and she was rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where she remains in a stable condition. The body of the Carmelita businessman was transported to the K.H.M.H. morgue where it awaits a postmortem examination.
