A young Corozal Town resident was crushed by a bus yesterday evening. The incident took place on 1st Street, almost in front of the Corozal Police Station. Twenty two year old Javier Luis Chan ran onto the street and in front of an incoming Morales bus. The bus, driven at the time by Alberto Luis Cowo, could not halt in time, and hit Chan and ran over him.
The Police are investigating and have impounded the Morales bus for the time being. According to their preliminary investigations, Chan ran onto the streets because he was being chased by two male persons from the direction of 7th Avenue. The two men were attempting to apprehend Chan because he had reportedly broken someone’s windshield.
Chan was someone usually seen roaming the streets of the town. He appeared to have a disorder.
He sustained severe head and body injuries and was transported to the Corozal Town Community Hospital where he died whilst undergoing treatment.
The Police have not charged the bus driver but will be waiting on advice from the office of the Director of Public Prosecution.
