Screen_Shot_2018-02-26_at_8.03.13_PMThere was also a fatal traffic accident on Sunday afternoon in Ranchito Village in Corozal which claimed the life of an Orange Walkeno.


This was the gruesome scene between mile 82 and 83, where 26 year old Justavo Patt of San Jose Village was knocked down and killed by the damaged vehicle seen a few yards ahead from his body on the road. The black in colour GMC Terrain SUV was driven at the time by 34 year old Carlos Vargas, a resident Orange Walk Town.


It is believe that Patt was riding his blue in colour bicycle towards Corozal Town, and may have attempted to cross the road, when the vehicle came from behind and could not avoid smashing into him.


Corozal Police were on scene carrying out their preliminary investigations and taking statements from both the driver and possible witnesses. Vargas provided a blood sample to the authorities for testing of alcohol content, if any.

Patt, we understand, has been living in Ranchito for some time. On the scene was his very distraught sister in law.
