By BBN Staff: A 56-year-old taxi driver was knocked down and killed yesterday in Belize City.
The accident happened around 11 am.
When police visited the Philip Goldson Highway near Easy Inn, they saw the man lying on the ground.
The man was identified as Arturo Requena and was taken to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where he died shortly thereafter.
Police investigation revealed that Requena had dropped off a relative at the hotel and then he went down from the direction of the Haulover Bridge, towards Palotti.
However, Requena reportedly returned and began to yell for the person he had dropped off. At the same time, a vehicle was coming from the direction of the Haulover towards Palotti and knocked him down.
Police have detained the driver and charges will be levied against him today.
