By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: In a devastating turn of events on the George Price Highway in Georgeville last night, a tragic traffic accident claimed the lives of four individuals, plunging their families and friends into mourning.

Just after 6:10 PM, authorities were alerted to a severe collision near Mile 62. Upon arrival, they were met with a harrowing scene: a white Dodge Ram, its structure severely damaged, and a grey Isuzu Amigo, its roof entirely torn away.

Inside the wrecked Isuzu Amigo lay three motionless individuals, later identified as Ian Harrison Mahler, Noel Pineda and Christian Lobos, while another was found beside the vehicle. Three more were injured, bearing witness to the accident’s severity.

The unfolding of the tragedy was heart-wrenching. Noel Pineda, behind the wheel of the Isuzu Amigo, was accompanied by Matias Gonzalez, Ian Harrison Mahler, Eric Delgado, Melvin Ramos, Christian Lobos, and Justo Opu. As they neared Mile 62, an oncoming white Dodge Ram, allegedly attempted to overtake but failed to return to its lane in time. The ensuing collision was catastrophic, sending the Dodge Ram spinning and hurling the Isuzu off the road.

Emergency services swiftly transported the victims for medical care. However, Matias Gonzalez’s injuries proved fatal. The bodies of Ian Harrison Mahler, Noel Pineda, and Christian Lobos were later taken to the National Forensic Science Service morgue.

Breaking Belize News deeply mourns with the families and friends of the departed, sharing in the sorrow of a community shaken by this tragic loss.
