By BBN Staff: A Yo Creek family is grieving today as a 12 year old female lost her life after their vehicle overturned on the George Price Highway.
The 8 occupants, including a number of children, were transported to the San Ignacio hospital. One was pronounced dead after arrival, 4 remain admitted, 1 was transferred in critical but stable condition to the Western Regional Hospital in Belmopan, and 2 are ok.
The vehicle, a white Ford Escape, was on the way to San Ignacio when the driver lost control at a curve near Riverwalk in Unitedville.
The incident occurred just before noon today. BBN extends a heartfelt thank you to the good Samaritan who picked up the family and transported them to the hospital immediately after the accident occurred.
