3 year old boy clings to life following accident in Scotland Halfmoon

There were a total of six traffic accidents over the weekend; four occurred in rural Belize which is the jurisdiction of Rural Executive Officer of the Police Department, Assistant Superintendent Christopher Noble. In a span of month, two children: three year old Ashley Silva and thirteen year old Earl Jones Junior died following violent traffic accidents near Burrell Boom. Tonight, another three year old is at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital fighting for his life after he was hit by a passenger bus in Scotland Halfmoon Village. According to reports, Romero Flowers Junior, a resident of the Buttercup Community and cousin of Jones Junior, was hit almost in front of the Baptist Church in Scotland Halfmoon Village as he and has family left a church service on Sunday. While the driver of the bus has been served with a notice of intended prosecution, ASP Noble is asking for persons to come forward to assist with the investigation.

“Persons were exiting an area where there was a church, traffic was thick and a child was knocked by a passenger bus traveling towards one of the villages. The child was rushed to the hospital and is being attended to there. The prognosis for the child is what the hospital is going to give us later today. We do understand that there are several fractures and it may be more serious than it looked at the time. We are looking into it. We have been dealing with that part of the investigation. If charges are forthcoming, we are asking for person who were on the bus or may have seen, come forward—whether it be to the Bermudian Landing Police, the Burrell Boom Police or Ladyville Police Station.”
