By Aaron Humes: Tonight, motorists are being urged to drive with extreme caution along the George Price Highway going out of Belize City.
At Mile 10 there was a multiple vehicle accident that caused the death of a woman and a child and injuries to others after her vehicle collided with an 18-wheeler truck.
The truck is still on the highway, we understand, and only one lane is available. The area is dark with no road signs or markings.
As for what caused the accident, reports suggest that after 3 p.m. multiple vehicles collided on the wet road, and the Geo Prizm spun across the road into the lane occupied by the 18-wheeler and t-boning.
The driver of the vehicle told local media that a dump truck going in the opposite direction caused the Prizm to spin into his lane and crash, unavoidably.
Investigation continues and we’ll have more as we get it.
