On Sunday July 23, 2017 at about 3:20 p.m., police responded to a traffic accident on the Chetumal Street Bridge in Belize City. Upon arrival on the scene, police observed a Chrysler minivan bearing license plate number BC-D-8489 on the right hand side of the bridge facing a North Western direction with half of the vehicle on the walkway of the bridge. The right railing of the bridge was also observed with extensive damages.

Initial police investigation revealed that the driver of the minivan, Enrique Cuellar, was driving from the direction of the George Price Highway when he lost control of his vehicle which caused him to slam into the bridge. The minivan was covered by third party risk insurance with Atlantic Insurance. Cuellar was issued with an NIP, while police investigations continue.
