Another man who is lucky to be alive tonight is 43 year old Marciano Tun who was knocked down by a Ford Astro van on Friday. The incident occurred around 9:25pm between miles 79 and 80 on the Phillip Goldson Highway.
When police arrived at the scene Tun had already been transported to the Corozal Community Hospital where police found him suffering from a cut wound to the fore head and nose, abrasions to the fore head, left side of back and left foot. Investigations revealed that around 9:00pm, 53 year old Primitivo Torres, Border Management Security of San Roman Village in the Corozal District, was driving his Astro Van in the direction of Corozal Town and upon reaching in front of Everyday Super Market Chinese Store in San Joaquin Village, a male person ran across the highway from the left to right side.
Unfortunately Torres was unable to avoid knocking down the man who was later identified as Tun. We understand that Torres pulled over and assisted Tun by taking him to the Corozal Community Hospital for treatment. It is expected that Torres will be served with a Notice of Intended prosecution.
