A BDF soldier is in critical condition after he was knocked down by a pickup truck. In the wee hours of Saturday morning, 20 year old Rodrick Che, a BDF soldier of Big Falls Village in the Toledo District, was walking on the Big Falls Bridge, while heading toward Indian Creek Village. Che was on the bridge along with his brother-in-law, when a White Chevrolet Pickup hit him from behind. He suffered severe head and body injuries and was rushed to the Punta Gorda Hospital and was later transferred to the Southern Regional Hospital. Meanwhile, the driver of the truck is facing a lengthy charge sheet – including driving a motor vehicle not covered by third party risk insurance, negligent grievous harm, driving an unlicensed motor vehicle and driving with alcohol concentration above the prescribed limit.
