Unlicensed Driver who knocked down woman works for 88 Shopping Center

On Friday we reported on the charges pressed against 19 year old Boyd Lopez,  after he lost control of  a vehicle on Baghdad Street, Belize City,  and knocked down and killed 70 year old Marie Knowles.

We reported that Mr Lopez was  driving a Toyota Highlander SUV which belonged to his boss. In that report, we said Boyd worked for Maria Chang and Sons, but we have since been informed that Boyd does not work for them. He works for 88 Shopping Center, which is housed at a property owned by Maria Chang and Sons.

On Friday, Lopez was read charges of manslaughter by negligence and causing death by careless conduct. He also faces charges of driving a motor vehicle without due care and attention, driving a motor vehicle not covered by third party risk insurance and driving a motor vehicle while not holding a valid driver’s license.
