A 14-year-old boy, responsible for knocking down a toddler in Orange Walk, and the adult who provided him with the key to the truck he was driving will both be charged next week.

According to Roger Briceno, O.C. Orange Walk Police, the minor as well as the owner of the Ford F-150, Deputy Prime Minister Gaspar Vega’s driver, Christopher Hendricks will be arraigned in court next Tuesday.

Briceno said that they have both been summoned already and the minor was charged with driving without due care and attention, negligent grievous harm, driving a motor vehicle without a driver’s license and failing to report an accident.
Hendricks will be charged with allowing a person to drive while not being the holder of a driver’s license.

The accident happened last Thursday while the 14-year-old was driving the pickup truck to deliver firewood to his home.

The minor collided with the two-year-old Rachel Chan and Chan received a large cut wound from her forehead to her temple.

Chan was transferred to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH) and is listed in serious but stable condition.
