Frank Robinson aka “Mango” was driving a Gray Isuzu D-Max, property of the Government of Belize and was travelling with two other men when the pick-up truck was hit by a green dump truck property of Imer Hernandez Construction.
The driver of the dump truck told our colleagues at KREM radio that both he and Robinson were headed in the same direction as if travelling to Belize City.
They had just passed one of the newly constructed speed bumps and he was picking up speed when all of a sudden, Robinson made a u-turn and though he blared his horn, his dump truck slammed into the driver’s side of the D-Max causing serious damages, while his dump truck remained practically undamaged.
As they worked, BERT personnel were doing everything possible to keep him conscious. But it was too late for Robinson: when he arrived at the hospital it was only to be pronounced dead.
