“Later that same night, Dangriga police also responded to a second fatal traffic accident between miles three and four on the Stann Creek Valley Road whereupon arrival they saw the body of a male Hispanic in the middle of the highway.  He was identified as Fidel Padilla, sixty-two-year-old, Honduran national with severe head and body injuries.  On the side of the highway was a blue damaged bicycle.  No one was in the area and also the vehicle which apparently knocked him down was not found in the area.  So, at this point in time we are seeking the public’s assistance in trying to locate that vehicle and driver in order to continue with our investigation in relation to this fatal traffic accident.  At this point in time we do not have any leads.”
