February 27, 2017. The government of Belize is trying its utmost best to cut expenses and there is a standing policy that government vehicles not on official duties are to be parked at the end of the work week.
PGTV cannot confirm what official duties a Ministry of Health SUV was involved in on Saturday; but the pickup truck with blue licence plates and the Ministry of Health logo on the side doors, was involved in a traffic accident on Saturday morning in Cattle Landing village.
PGTV was at the scene of the incident shortly after the impact and saw the government vehicle with its front passenger side wheel torn off and on the side of the Southern Highway.
A black pickup truck which was apparently side-swiped by the SUV was on the pavement and another vehicle that was also hit in the incident was nearby.
