Death by caterpillar tractor

Another man was killed, but in a freak accident on Wednesday afternoon. Fifty year old Kent Myvette, a mechanic of Unitedville was killed shortly after three o’clock in an area nine miles into a feeder road near mile twenty-four on the Western Highway.  There they observed the motionless body of Myvette, an employee of Belize River Farm Company, whose left foot was caught beneath the track of a Caterpillar tractor.  Investigations later revealed that around two-thirty that afternoon forty-three year old Freddie Dominguez was plowing a tract of land when he accidentally ran over Myvette’s leg.  Dominguez and a co-worker tried desperately to free Myvette from under the massive wheel of the vehicle but their attempt was futile.  They then sought assistance from other employees in the area; however, upon returning to the scene of the mishap they discovered Myvette’s body.  Dominguez has since been served a notice of intended prosecution.

    Why didn’t he just drive it off the same way he came rather then let them try to tear his foot off or leave him there to bleed to death?
