By Benjamin Flowers: An 11-year-old girl from Santa Familia Village, Cayo district is dead and her 5-year-old brother is injured after being hit by a pickup truck yesterday.

Police say that Keiana Yalene Cruz and her baby brother Jahir Cruz were walking on a feeder road in the village around 4:15 p.m. when the vehicle came and knocked them down, then crashed into a lamp post some distance away.

Keiana died on the spot while Jahir was taken to the San Ignacio Hospital with a broken foot and internal bleeding. He was later transferred to the Western Regional Hospital (WRH).

Police have since detained the 27-year-old driver of the vehicle; however, he has not been officially charged with any offense, so his name must be withheld.

This is a developing story.
