Last night we reported that twenty four year old Doyle Anthony Barahona came face to face with death as a result of a tragic accident that occurred on Tuesday at about 4:50 p.m. on the Benque Road near St. Gabriel Medical Center.
At the time of the accident, Barahona was travelling along with forty seven year old David Dominguez and twenty year old Christopher Usher in a blue Freight liner truck bearing license plate CZL A-00153. The three were heading towards the Hawksworth Bridge when the driver of the truck, Dominguez, realized that his brakes were malfunctioning and asked Barahona to step out in order to offer a helping hand by putting a rock in front of the back wheel of the truck.
Barahona was crushed by the right wheel of the truck as Dominguez lost control causing the vehicle to swerve on the roadside. Barahona was trapped in between the wheel and a hill. He was transported to the San Ignacio Community Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
Dominguez was served with a ‘Notice of Intended Prosecution’. However, police are still investigating the accident and Dominguez has not been charged.
