Well- known Belizean American businessman from Orange Walk, John Triminio, 54, lost his life over the weekend due to severe head and body injuries he sustained during a motorcycle accident on the Phillip Goldson Highway.

Triminio died just before 9:00 p.m. on February 17th, while undergoing treatment at the Northern Regional Hospital.


Police sources say that around 8:30 that night Triminio was socializing along with friends in Corozal and departed on his motorcycle en route to his home in Orange Walk.

According to authorities, the deceased was accompanied by one of his friends who was riding on a separate motorcycle, and that individual reported that upon nearing the pedestrian ramp near San Roman Village, Triminio lost control of his motorcycle, causing him to fall to the pavement where he was severely injured.

While police have confirmed that the Boundary Road resident was socializing prior to the crash, they cannot establish whether alcohol was a factor in the accident and will be awaiting the results of a test result to determine whether that was the case.

In light of the rising statistics in the number of fatal and non-fatal motorcycle accidents, ACP Joseph Myvette, Head of the National Crimes investigation branch commented – “Most of the districts have implemented or continued with their highway patrol programs. Many of us who travel the roads at night would see the number of motorcycles on the highway and some are not properly lit. Much care is not being exercised by these motorcycle drivers, hence putting other drivers in danger. So, yes, it is a serious concern and we are taking steps by implementing additional patrols.”
