On Monday, July 31, 2017 at 7:00 a.m., police responded to a road traffic accident between miles 60 and 61 on the George Price Highway in the Cayo District. Upon arrival, they observed two motorcycles with damages to the front portions. Initial investigations reveal that Oscar Erlindo Aguirre, a 23-year-old Belizean Security Guard of Benque Viejo del Carmen Town, Cayo District, was riding his motorcycle heading to San Ignacio Town.

Upon reaching the Chaa Creek intersection, he saw a red motorcycle being driven by Kevlin Elmer, a 25-year-old Belizean Tour Guide of Santa Elena Town. Elmer was driving in the opposite direction and upon reaching the junction, he made a sudden turn into his lane which caused a head-on collision. Both riders were flung off their cycle and sustained body injuries. They were transported to the San Ignacio Community Hospital.

A medico form was issued to Aguirre who sustained a fractured left hand and wound on the head. He was admitted for observation. A medico form was also issued to Elmer who complained of chest pain. Elmer was served with a notice of intended persecution.
