imagesA man was knocked down by a bus and killed last night in Buena Vista Village at Mile 68 on the Phillip Goldson Highway.


Just about 6:30pm, a Tillet’s bus with license plate OW-4513, heading in the direction of Santa Clara Village, hit a cyclist who was riding his bicycle along the road side and in the same direction. The impact sent the cyclist crashing onto the road; the impact so severe that he died just after.


The bus driver, 50 year old Luciano Cabanas of Ranchito Village, told the authorities that the bicyclist swerved onto the road, and he just couldn’t avoid him because a cane truck was coming from the other direction.

On the scene, the bus had come to halt about 90 feet from where the body lay. The victim has, up to news time, been unidentified by the Police. He had no identification cards on him and only carried crocus bags which contained empty cans and, strangely, a puppy.


Police say they suspect that the fatal victim is of Mexican nationality, and are hoping someone could assist with his identity. The incident slowed traffic on the highway for at least three hours.

The authorities have issued Cabanas with a notice of intended prosecution service pending the result of their investigations.
