Screen_Shot_2016-06-07_at_8.06.07_PMA well-known mechanic from Corozal Town is tonight dead after he was involved in a traffic accident in West Mount Houston, Northwest Harris County.

Reports coming out of Houston indicate that the accident happened at about 8:30 this morning as this black Nissan Xterra driven at the time by Lenox Young better known as DJ Tambran was coming out of Import Center Junk Yard on Highway 249. We understand that as the vehicle entered into the highway the driver of this pickup truck ran into the driver side of the Xterra killing Tamay on the spot.

Also traveling in the Xterra at the time of the incident was 55 year old retired Superintendent Amin August from the Cayo District. Today via phone from Houston Texas August spoke to us about the dreadful accident.

“We were passing in front of US Imports, 124 I think West Mount Houston, after being there for a short while we decided to move because the place wasn’t open it was supposed to be opened at eight or eight thirty so we decided to move, as we started to move the door went in at the bottom and that cause him to fly out over the door and fell on the edge of the road and the other vehicle that hit us went on and hit a light post, Mr. Tamay was sitting behind the driver on the driver side the next side of the vehicle and I was sitting beside the driver on the passenger side.”

According to August, he recently met Tamay on the trip and they became good friends. Today he sent out condolences to the family of the deceased.

August escaped unhurt while DJ Tambran injured his shoulder and left arm. As for the driver of the pickup truck we understand he received minor injuries. His name is yet to be revealed.

According to family members Tamay called them yesterday saying he was not feeling well. He was to arrive in Corozal on Thursday. We thank Silvino Riverol for assisting us in obtaining the interview with August.
