Motorcyclist killed in N. Highway crash

The Northern Highway also proved deadly for another man, this time a resident of Xaibe Village in the Corozal District. According to police, just after 7:00 on Friday night twenty-six year old Diego Alcoser lost his life when his motorcycle collided with a Chevy Blazer. The driver of that vehicle, thirty-two year old Felipe Galaz, told the cops that he was driving towards the Santa Elena border when another vehicle speeding toward him suddenly swerved into his lane. Galaz says he tried to avoid a collision, but seconds later crashed head on into a motorcycle. Riding the cycle were Alcoser and twenty-seven year old Celestino Nicholson, both employees of Belize Electricity Limited. The two men were rushed to the Corozal hospital for treatment, but Alcoser was pronounced dead on arrival. Nicholson was admitted to ward with two broken legs. News 5 understands that Breathalyzer tests were conducted on Galaz, but those results have not yet been made public.
