Placencia police received information on Friday May 19, 2017 of a fatal road traffic accident between miles 20 and 21. There they observed a grey four-door Toyota 4 Runner on the side of the road. Under the Toyota was a red and black Honda Shadow motorcycle. Near the motorcycle was 45-year-old Shams Moose, an Indian national of Maya Beach with head and body injuries apparently dead.

Investigations revealed that the driver of the 4 Runner, 24-year-old Shawn Vasquez of Seine Bight Village, Stann Creek, was heading to Placencia when Moose came in the opposite direction on the motorcycle. Moose swerved into Vasquez’s lane and there was a collission. Moose reportedly died on spot. The body was taken to the Southern Regional Hospital and pronounced dead on arrival on May 20. A notice of intended prosecution was served on Vasquez.
