By BBN Staff: A notice of intended prosecution has been served to 59-year-old Spanish Lookout resident, Felix Sandoval after his Ford pickup truck fatally injured an elderly man yesterday morning in the Esso Gas Station compound in that community.
Sandoval told police that around 11:30 a.m., he had just finished repairing his truck tire at the gas station and while reversing out of the compound he felt an impact at the rear end of the vehicle.
When he got out to check what had happened, he saw a man later identified as 89-year-old Guatemalan National, Alejandro Padillo, lying on the ground with abrasions to the side of his face.
Padillo, who is also a resident of Spanish Lookout in the Cayo District, later succumbed to his injuries while receiving treatment at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH) and Sandoval will be charged accordingly.
