Screen_Shot_2017-04-25_at_8.12.13_PMThe infamous Yo Creek road has tonight claimed another life, the second since the start of 2017. The incident occurred shortly after five o’clock this evening just a short distance away from Cuello’s Distillery on the Yo Creek road. The victim, identified as sixty year old Miguel Soliz, was reportedly traveling in this white jeep Cherokee heading towards August Pine Ridge, where he lives, when he apparently lost control of the vehicle, causing it to flip several times and landed on the opposite side of the road.


Soliz apparently died on impact after receiving various head and body injuries and was trapped in the vehicle and personnel from the Orange Walk fire department had to pry it open in order to get Soliz out. Forty six year old Gildardo Balam who was also traveling in the vehicle at the time of the incident was transported to the northern Regional Hospital, complaining of pain to his neck.


The reason which caused Soliz to lose control of his vehicle is still unknown as police are yet to issue an official release on the incident.


It is of note that while this fatality is the second for this year, in late December 2016, the Yo Creek road played witness to one of the most horrific accidents in Orange Walk as three Yo Creek men lost their lives. We will have more on this story in tomorrow’s newscast.
