On Sunday August 7th, 2011, Marvin “Big Spanish” Deras, 37, Eco-Tours Operator and one of KremFm’s DJ’s, got in a traffic collision with Lyndon Guiseppe, 47, CEO of BCB Holdings Limited. Deras has since succumbed to injuries sustained in the accident.

Police say that the accident happened at around 3 p.m. that Sunday, between miles 6 and 7 on the Northern Highway. Deras was driving a 2010 Toyota Forerunner heading toward Ladyville. Guiseppe was driving a white 2008 Toyota Land Cruizer, and he was heading toward Belize City.

Both vehicles ended up in a head-on collision, and both men suffered injuries. Police had originally reported that Deras suffered a broken right foot and abrasions to his head, while Guiseppe suffered minor injuries to his right arm and he complained of pain to the hip area.  Both men reportedly sought medical attention at Belize Medical Associates. On Monday, August 15th, Deras succumbed to his injuries. The family has opted not to comment to the media, but the Guardian has been reliably informed that he had also suffered internal bleeding in the abdomen as a result of the collision. This reportedly led to his death.

Police have said that they’ve served Guiseppe with a Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP), and the file has been sent to the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions for “perusal and instructions.” No charges have been brought against Guiseppe as yet.
