Tragic hit-and-run incident claims life of Thomas Ezequiel Pott; Family seeks justice

By Breaking Belize News Staff: The family of Mr. Thomas Ezequiel Pott is seeking answers following his tragic death in a hit-and-run incident that occurred near Mahogany Heights on July 13th.

Pott, who was heading towards Belmopan from Placencia with his workers, was initially involved in a traffic accident with a cattle truck. After allegedly settling the matter with the cattle truck driver, they continued their journey. In the vicinity of Mahogany Heights, Pott stepped out of his vehicle for a brief moment and during this time an unidentified individual reportedly took control of the vehicle and ran over Pott, leaving him critically injured by the roadside.

According to the family, the workers who were sitting in the back of the truck tried to gain the driver’s attention by pounding on the vehicle. However, the truck continued on its course for approximately two miles. When they returned to the initial scene, they found Pott critically injured. He was transported to the Belmopan Hospital, but despite the best efforts of the medical team, he passed away due to the severity of his injuries.

The unidentified driver was subsequently detained by the police and later released, charged with driving under the influence. Pott’s family, however, strongly believes that the charges do not reflect the severity of the incident, especially given multiple eyewitness accounts.

Pott’s family contacted Breaking Belize News (BBN) claiming that they have reported the incident to the Mahogany Heights Police Station but expressed dissatisfaction with the lack of progress in the investigation. The family feels their pursuit of justice is being ignored.

The family is urging anyone with additional information about the incident to come forward. They are confident that, with public support, they can ensure that justice is served for the tragic loss of Thomas Ezequiel Pott.
