Family clarifies motorcycle-horse accident

By BBN Staff: Following the posting of a story about a horse killed in a motorcycle-horse accident earlier today by BBN (https://breakingbelizenews.com/2017/06/08/road-traffic-accident-cayo-leaves-horse-dead-motorcyclist-hospitalized/), a close relative of the motorcycle driver contacted BBN to provide their version of what happened.

According to the relative, a proper ‘halter’ or ‘head stall’ was not installed on the horse and as such the young rider lost control of the horse. The claim is that the horse ran frantically across the road, and the motorcyclist could not avoid colliding with the horse. The incident occurred in the vicinity of Bishop Martin primary school in San Ignacio.  The relative reported that the motorcycle was on the right side of the road and was not speeding as reported by other BBN sources.

From the photo provided, BBN can indeed confirm that the horse did not have on a proper ‘head stall’, and in accidents involving horses, it is not unusual for the horse to get frantic and bolt towards or in front of vehicles thereby catching drivers by surprise. As earlier reported, the horse died on impact and the driver of the motorcycle was hospitalized.

BBN confirmed that Police is investigating the matter. However, up to the posting of this story, Police has not issued an official report.
