Eric Vellos, a 24 year old part-time student of the University of Belize, was killed shortly after midnight last Saturday while driving home to Corozal Town.
Vellos, who was planning to get married at the end of January, was flung from his Nissan Altima when it hit the edge of a culvert.
The car flipped over multiple times and Vellos suffered severe head trauma as well as severe body injuries.
The accident occurred a little past mile 81 near Ranchito Village. Vellos worked for the Bowen & Bowen Group of companies and was expecting his first child with his girlfriend.
