On the 21st of March 2018 at about 8:20pm, officers responded to a report of a Road Traffic between miles 11 and 12 on the Stann Creek Valley road. Upon arrival, officers observed a grey Toyota Hiace van with extensive damages to the front portion and a female lying motionless with head and body injuries about 7 feet away from the van. Police also observed a white Toyota Rav 4 on the side of the road, extensively damaged. Initial investigation revealed that Oscar GOMEZ, 32 year old Belizean Security officer of a Las Flores address, was traveling from the Dangriga to Belmopan in his grey Toyota Hiace van, along with Maria Esther GUILLEN, 58 year old Belizean Domestic of a Las Flores address, Kenroy GOMEZ, 10 year old Belizean Student of a Belmopan address, and Christina ORTIZ, 25 year old, when upon reaching between miles 11 and 12 on the Stann Creek Valley Road, the white Rav4 that was traveling in the opposite direction made a left turn and collided into the driver’s side of GOMEZ’s van that resulted in his vehicle over turning several times. The Rav4 was driven by a 17 year old minor who was accompanied by Elisa HERNANDEZ, 26 year old Belizean Domestic of Pomona Village, Stann Creek District. As a result, Maria Esther GUILLEN succumbed to her injuries; Christina ORTIZ is listed in a critical condition. All other parties were treated and released.
