Downtown traffic accident claims passenger’s life

Story PictureA traffic accident in downtown Belize City over the weekend has left one man dead. According to investigating officers, around nine on Saturday night thirty-nine year old Carlos Alamina was riding in the back of a pickup truck, but when the vehicle turned at the corner of North Front and Queen streets, Alamina fell out, sustaining serious injuries to his head. He was rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital but doctors declared him dead on arrival. The driver of the truck, identified as thirty-nine year old Justo Reyes, has since been charged with manslaughter by negligence, causing death by careless conduct, driving without due care and attention, driving with an alcohol concentration above the prescribed limit, and carrying a person not properly seated. Reyes appeared before Magistrate Dorothy Flowers today where he was granted bail of four thousand dollars and ordered to return to court on the ninth of June.
