Another Deadly Accident on Cayo Highway as Pre-Teen Dies

Lelany Chan

There were several accidents reported over the weekend, but a fatal RTA on Saturday claimed one life and left several others injured. Twelve-year-old Lelany Chan lost her life when a vehicle she was traveling in over-turned between miles fifty-nine and sixty on the George Price Highway around midday.  Twenty-eight-year-old Didier Novelo was driving a white SUV heading in the direction of Belmopan when he lost control of the vehicle, which caused it to flip several times.  Chan suffered multiple bodily injuries and died at the hospital later that day; twenty-year-old Joslie Johnson received body injuries and remains hospitalized in the Western Regional Hospital in an unconscious state. Four others who were also inside the vehicle remain hospitalized in a stable condition at the San Ignacio Community Hospital. Novelo has been detained pending investigation.
