A passenger bus slams into a car and ends up in the graveyard

Earlier in our newscast, we told you about cops breaking open a grave, and to continue the grave theme, this morning a vehicle was forced off the highway straight into the Lord Ridge Cemetery. It was a relatively minor accident and probably wouldn’t even have made it onto our newscast. But it is Halloween, after all. Taxi-man Edwin Haylock was driving into Belize City at around eleven with his wife when a bus rear-ended him and pushed him over the sidewalk and into some graves near the road. Haylock says the bus was simply going too fast when it tried to overtake him on the bumpy stretch of road.


Edwin Haylock, Rear-ended by Bus

“I midi come from home and then same time the white bus that you see parked there was coming behind me. And then a green Hilux was in front of me parked because some guys were doing work in the burying ground. Same time, another vehicle was coming the opposite side and then the bus mi di try overtake the whole situation. And he bang into the car from way ina di hole down there to way ina di burying ground because I had to avoid from knock the green car fi make I noh get crush by the bus and the car with my wife. And I avoided turning and get into the burying ground. It is a lucky thing that I know how to control mein.”

“He mi di try overtake the whole ordeal. Like weh I say, he mi di come too fast under speed and when he knock the vehicle, I just hear the back glass burst and when the back glass burst, I just panic and I turn away from the vehicle and just gone into the burying ground. Lucky thing that the vehicle stop at some high bumps.”


Neither Haylock or his wife were hurt, and he told us that matters have already been sorted out with the bus owner and the insurance company.
