Four dead and five injured in massive accident on Hummingbird Highway; police warn against traveling in the back of pick-up trucks

Posted: Monday, November 27, 2023. 9:40 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Police say five persons traveling in a Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck that overturned at Mile 28, Hummingbird Highway, on Saturday evening are still being treated, including a minor in critical condition, while four have died.

The driver, Sherwin Garbutt, as well as Timothy Reyes (Neal), Delwin Armstrong, and Edwin Brown, all friends and workers from Roaring Creek, all died.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Hilberto Romero explained what police know so far: “Investigation is that the driver of the pickup at the time was Sherwin Garbutt and he was heading to Belmopan when he lost control of the vehicle, flipped several times… The investigation is ongoing and we are trying to establish exactly where they were coming from. All information we have is that he lost control of the vehicle.”

ACP Romero further confirmed that some passengers were in the pan of the pick-up truck, which is a traffic offense: “…when they pass any checkpoint, they are given a ticket, or they can be taken to court for that offense.”

Reports say this is the third accident in the area in the last few weeks.
