Joseph Myvett

Another woman also tragically died in a road traffic accident; this time, it happened on the Hummingbird Highway.  The elderly woman was knocked down and killed this morning in the village of Valley Community. Here’s what the police know about this RTA.


ACP Joseph Myvett, Head, National Crimes Investigation Branch

“This morning, shortly after 6:45 am police were called to miles eighteen on the Stann Creek Valley Road where they observed the body of sixty-seven-year-old Dolores Pana of that area motionless on the right hand side of the highway. What police learnt is that shortly before that time, Ernest Arnold was riding his motorcycle from a north to south direction when he overtook a vehicle going in the same direction and that is when he accidentally knocked down Dolores Pana who was flung in a ditch on the right hand side of the road. It is believed that Arnold may have received some injuries but he will be dealt with by the police as soon as he is through from the hospital in relation to this accident.”
