Tuesday, August 25th, 2015. Aaron Humes Reporting: Two weeks ago there were multiple fatalities reported on the Philip Goldson Highway between Miles 6 and 7 when a 4-door Mercedes with no license plates slammed into a Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck.
Two men identified as 52 year old Alden Locke, also known as “Tall B”, and 30 year old Shane Goff, were killed and several others injured.
On Monday the driver of the Mercedes, St. Paul’s Bank, Belize District resident 24 year old Ethon Belisle, faced a slew of traffic offences before Magistrate Ladonna John.
