Brothers perish in traffic accident; still no clue who driver was

Last night we told you about the death of  two brothers who died as a result of a traffic accident in the Toledo District. The brothers were identified as 28 year old Jaime Archer and 27 year old Antony Archer.  Today, ACP Joseph Myvette told the media that police are still unable to determine who the driver of the vehicle was, because both surviving passengers remain in a critical condition at the KHMH. 

ASP.  Joseph Myvette, OC of NCIB: So far the police is unable to determine who the driver is, as the other two occupants, Dorian Romero and Jerry Cruz both remain in critical condition at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. On today’s date shortly after 1pm, the post-mortem is scheduled to be conducted on the Archer brothers and the police investigation into this matter continues. I believe that samples were taken from all four persons in relation to this accident.

The accident happened on Tuesday June 24th, sometime before 6 p.m.,  between miles 12 and 13 on the San Antonio Road, Toledo District near San Marcus Junction. Police say when they arrived on the scene, a grey 4 door Toyota Corolla car was extensively damaged and was off the left-hand side of the highway. Police say when they got on the scene, they saw three male persons on the roadside, one of whom was motionless. The dead man was identified as 28 year old Jaime Archer, a Belizean security Guard of Forest Home Village, Toledo District.  The other two men were identified as 20 year old Darian Romero, a Belizean laborer of Forest Home Village, and 17 year old Jerry Cruz, a Belizean unemployed of Forest Home. Darian Romero and Jerry Cruz were transported by ambulance to the Punta Gorda Hospital. It was not until police arrived back in PG that they were told there were actually four persons in the wreck. Police had to return to the scene and searched in nearby bushes until they found the dead body of 27 year old Antony Alfonso Archer, a Belizean laborer of Elridge Ville Village. He was the brother of the other man who died at the scene as well. Darian Romero and Jerry Cruz are listed in critical but stable conditions.
