“Rich Kid” is Killed in Hit & Run Incident

Radcliffe Codd

A hit and run in Belize City on Friday night has claimed the life of a Belize City resident.  Fifty-two-year-old Radcliffe Codd was riding a bicycle along the Philip Goldson Highway when he was knocked down by someone driving a black Kia sports utility vehicle.  The motorist and cyclist were both headed in the same direction at the time of the incident.  Upon receiving information of what had taken place, police responded to an area in front of A&R Enterprises Limited, where they observed Codd unconscious, face down in the middle of the highway.  He had suffered severe head and body injuries and was transported to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where he passed away on Sunday morning.  Assistant Commissioner of Police Hilberto Romero provides additional details of the incident.
