Minor killed in accident on Western Highway

A traffic accident on the Western Highway early this afternoon took the life of a sixteen year old minor. Around one-thirty p.m., Edwardo Flores was crossing the highway between miles ten and eleven to catch a bus en route to Belmopan when he was hit by a dark green Toyota pickup truck travelling in the opposite direction. Driver of the vehicle, thirty-six year old Marvin Polanco rushed the wounded youth to the K.H.M.H., but he was pronounced dead on arrival. Polanco has since been served with a notice of intended prosecution.
