By Aaron Humes: KWHI Radio reports that the victims of Saturday’s traffic mishap on the Hummingbird Highway have been identified as Shelley Addison and her husband, Chris, of Brenham, Texas.
As we first reported, the Addisons were travelling in a Jeep on the Hummingbird Highway towards Belmopan, when they collided with a container truck going in the opposite direction.
Shelley Addison, who worked for the city of Brenham for more than three decades, was pronounced dead at a hospital, while as of Sunday according to KWHI, Chris remained hospitalized.
The City of Brenham, in a statement issued Monday afternoon, remembers Shelley’s contributions to her native city: “You could find Shelley in her office early in the morning or well after 5:00 PM working on the accuracy of utility bills, talking with customers, or verifying meter reads. Her positive attitude and free spirit could be heard in her joyful laugh each day. Over her 34-year career, she modeled a true public servant’s heart, and her commitment and dedication to the community were extraordinary. Shelley was a special person and will be deeply missed.”
In October of 2018, Shelley Addison received service recognition for 30 years working for the city in utility billing, most recently serving as Utility Customer Service Supervisor.
The cause of the accident remains under investigation at this time.
