Melchor Trucker Gets Crushed under 18-wheeler at Border

Marcus Fernando Zabaleto

Guatemalan trucker Marcus Fernando Zabaleto lost his life at the western border earlier today when an eighteen-wheeler ran him over.  According to police, they were called out to the cargo area of the Belize Western Border where they saw the lifeless body of the thirty-eight-year-old resident of Melchor de Mencos.  An investigation into the incident revealed that sometime before eleven o’clock, fifty-three-year-old Jose Alfredo Guevara Guerra, a Guatemalan trucker from Santa Ana Peten, was driving a  Freight Liner Truck off the lot.  He was immediately notified that someone had been lodged between the wheels of the vehicle, but it was too late.  Zabaleto had been dragged a distance, during which he was crushed and disfigured.  His body was transported to the San Ignacio Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
