On Monday July 31, 2017 at about 5:00 p.m. acting on information received, police visited the Branch Mouth Road in San Ignacio Town. Upon arrival, they saw a pickup truck and a utility truck wedged in a head on collision with the driver of the utility truck still inside.

Initial investigations revealed that Arcelio Castillo, a 79-year-old Belizean of Santa Elena Town was driving the pickup truck heading towards San Ignacio Town when, upon reaching the intersection of Branch Mouth and Joseph Andrews Drive in San Ignacio, he took a left turn. That turn caused him to collide into the truck which was being driven by Elias Lucas Ochoa, a 41-year-old Belizean of Roaring Creek.

Both of Ochoa’s feet were broken and Castillo complained of pain to the upper body. They were both transported to the La Loma Luz Hospital for treatment. Police are investigating
