By BBN Staff: An 80-year-old man is dead, following a Friday night traffic accident on the Stann Creek Valley Road.
Samuel Augustus King, a Belizean Laborer of Sarawee Village, Stann Creek, was pronounced dead on arrival at the Southern Regional Hospital sometime after 7 p.m. after being hit by a car.
Reports are that the driver of the car, whose name cannot be called because he has not been formally charged with any offense, was driving from the direction of Alta Vista Village heading to Dangriga Town when he saw King riding on a bicycle crossing the highway.
The driver reportedly swerved away to avoid hitting King, but King turned in the direction of the vehicle and was hit. The driver remains detained as police investigations continue.
