A Mennonite Mechanic Perishes in Blue Creek RTA

Marco Vidal

The fourth fatality occurred in Blue Creek Village, Orange Walk. On Sunday morning, just before six o’clock, Henrich Reimer lost control of his vehicle and overturned several times on the road. The Toyota pickup came to a stop with its four wheels in the air inside a canal on the side of the road. The thirty-five-year-old Mennonite mechanic was not wearing a seatbelt and it is believed that he drowned as a result of the vehicle being partially submerged. That, however, will be determined by a post-mortem. Assistant Commissioner of Police Marco Vidal shares additional details.

“At five-forty-five a.m., where Henrich Reimer, thirty-five years mechanic of Blue Creek was driving his red in colour Toyota pickup from the direction of San Felipe heading towards Blue Creek Village when he lost control and ended inside a canal with his four wheels up again. Mister Reimer is a Mennonite; he as inside the vehicle and appeared dead at the time. He was later pronounced dead by the doctor at the Northern Regional Hospital.   I can say that the driving.
