By Victor Castillo Sr.: San Ignacio police are currently investigating a traffic accident that has claimed the life of 43-year-old Juan Alvarado, a Belizean carpenter of the Hillview Area in Santa Elena Town, Cayo.
Officials in that municipality reported that on March 28th, at around 2:10 am, officers responded to information of an accident on the Bullet Tree Road. Upon arrival, police officers observed a red Nissan Frontier with extensive damage.
Initial investigations have revealed that Alvarado was driving the vehicle in direction of San Ignacio Town when he lost control of the vehicle causing it to run off road and flip, landing on its wheel.
At the time of the accident Alvarado was in the company of 24-year-old John Xol, a Belizean mechanic of Bishop Martin Street, Santa Elena Town and Byron Barcena.
All three men were transported to the San Ignacio Community Hospital where Alvarado, who was bleeding from his right ear was pronounced dead on arrival. Barcena was transported to the Western Regional Hospital for further medical attention while Xol was treated at the San Ignacio Community Hospital for minor injuries and later released.
A post mortem on Alvarado’s body is scheduled for later this week. Police investigations into the accident continue.
