By Marion Ali, Staff Reporter

Well-known “loan shark”, Pamela Garnett Bennett, of Caesar Ridge Road in Belize City was one of two persons killed on Sunday morning in a road traffic accident on the Phillip Goldson highway.

The accident occurred at around 9:00 and involved four vehicles. Bennett was in a white car heading towards Belize City when the incident occurred near mile six.

The other person who died was Alfredo Navarette, a resident of Burrell Boom village. He was reportedly involved in one of the other vehicles.

Reports are that there was another traffic accident at the same location earlier the same morning and that there had been a heavy downpour at the time, causing poor visibility on the slick road.
