By BBN Staff: Last night, San Ignacio police responded to a fatal road traffic accident between miles 56 and 57 on the George Price Highway where 56-year-old Marlene Wellington, a resident of San Ignacio Town reported that around 9 p.m. while she was driving her Mazda mini-van on the George Price Highway and upon reaching between mile 56 and 57, her vehicle ran out of fuel.

Wellington came to a stop on the right hand side of the highway and turned on the hazard lights of the vehicle, and minutes later her son-in-law David Galigo along with his friend Carlos Medina arrived.

Shortly after, a white Chevrolet six wheeler truck with Benque Viejo license plates driven by 62-year-old Trinidad De La Fuente of Benque Viejo collided into the rear of her van which hit and injured Medina.

Medina was transported to the San Ignacio Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police are investigating.
