Tuesday, August 19, 2014. PATRICK E. JONES Reporting: Deputy Commissioner of Police Miguel Segura has been arrested and charged for traffic related offences in relation to a fatal traffic accident on the George Price Highway on Saturday morning.
For over five hours today, residents of San Jose Succotz village demonstrated and closed down the George Price Highway passing through the village to vehicular traffic.
As tires burned at the speed bump right before the ferry which leads to the Xunantunich Archaeological site, senior officers from both San Ignacio and Benque Viejo del Carmen negotiated with the people throughout the course of the protest to try and get them to relent; but it was not until mid-afternoon that things came to a resolution.
After the debris was washed away, the highway was reopened to vehicular traffic.
The charges against Miguel Segura are Manslaughter by Negligence, Causing Death by Careless Conduct, Driving a motor vehicle without due care and attention, Negligent Grievous Harm and Driving with Alcohol Concentration above the prescribed limit.
Segura, represented by attorney Ellis Arnold, was formally arraigned in the Magistrate’s Court this afternoon and was granted bail in the amount of $6,000. He will reappear in court on October 9.
