Castro’s Leaked Audio on Traffic Accident

U.D.P. Area Representative Edmond Castro was involved in a traffic collision on January twentieth on the George Price Highway. Castro was heading to Belmopan from Belize City when at mile four; he collided head on to another vehicle as he was overtaking.  The accident was non-fatal, but from a leaked phone conversation, the investigation into whose fault it was remains in the air. In the leaked audio, Castro is allegedly heard trying to convince the driver of the other vehicle to take the blame for the crash so the insurance company pays for it.  The driver is hesitant and refuses to take the blame, however, Castro insists and the driver agrees to contact the insurance company.
