There was a fatal road traffic accident in Orange Walk on Thursday afternoon. The victim was identified as Nadir Munoz. According to reports, Mr Munoz was driving a jeep belonging to Maya Tortilla on the Yo Creek Road. At mile two on that road, and around 2 0’clock this afternoon, Nadir Munoz somehow slammed the jeep into a truck which was parked on the right hand side of the road. We spoke to WPC Marilyn Pate who is in charge of the investigation.
“Two vehicles were seen, on both sides of the road. [One was] a beige Suzuki Wagon with license plate C03699, with extensive damage. On the right hand side [was] a green Bedford truck. Further checks were made. The beige Suzuki truck was heading in the direction of Orange Walk, while the Bedford truck was off on the right hand side of the road, facing the direction of Yo Creek. Somehow the [Suzuki] lost control, and collided into the Bedford truck. The driver of the Suzuki vehicle was taken from the scene, to the hospital, before the arrival of the Police.”
He was pronounced dead on arrival at the Northern Regional Hospital.
