Traffic accident leaves man critically injured

By Marion Ali,  Assistant Editor

An elderly man is in a critical condition after he was knocked off a bicycle at the mile 8 community on the George Price highway on Wednesday night.

Nory Novelo told police she was driving a black Toyota 4 Runner SUV from Belmopan to Belize City and as she reached in front of the recycling company on the highway just before 7:00 p.m., she saw a woman riding a bicycle across the highway, and an elderly man walking across the highway as well. She reported that she blew her horn and applied brakes to avoid hitting the man but it was too late.

Police have issued a Notice of Intended Prosecution to Novelo and the Katl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH) has asked the public to assist in identifying the man, who remains in a critical condition.
