Belize City man in critical condition after hit and run…

Story PictureIt was not mentioned in the police blotter, but on Saturday night there was a hit and run accident near the junction of Western Avenue and Mahogany Street that sent a sixty-one year old man to the intensive care unit of the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. Stanley Usher was heading home when he was knocked down. Police transported Usher to the hospital but no one has come forth to claim responsibility for the accident. Usher is in critical condition and his family is desperately in need of help. An emotional daughter, Karen Usher, says her father needs to undergo several tests and the family is strapped for cash.
