Dorian Anthony

A very serious traffic accident on the George Price Highway has resulted in the untimely death of 43-year-old Dorian Anthony, a Belize City Resident.
Reports to the press are that at around 9:10 a.m. on Tuesday, March 24, 2020, police responded to an emergency call that a wrecked vehicle was stuck under a trailer in an area between Miles 12 and 13 on the George Price Highway. When the first responders arrived, they found a red Mitsubishi Outlander SUV, which was extensively damaged. Inside the wreckage, the emergency authorities discovered a man, who was trapped between the driver’s seat and the front passenger seat. That man was identified as Dorian Anthony, a resident of North Creek Road in Belize City, and the authorities quickly noticed that Anthony appeared lifeless. The mangled vehicle ended up trapped under a white, 42-foot trailer, which is the property of the Caribbean Paper Company. That trailer was parked at that location for an extended period of time.
It is believed that Anthony was in the vehicle with two other men, who have been identified as 57-year-old Gary Trapp, and Dan Myers. All three individuals were traveling in the SUV, and they were heading in the direction of Hattieville Village. It is unclear what exactly happened, but the vehicle experienced some sort of blow out of the left rear wheel. That caused the driver to lose control, and the SUV then crashed into the parked trailer. All three occupants of the vehicle suffered varying degrees of injuries, but both Myers and Trapp were treated and released from the KHMH. Anthony passed away at the scene, and it is believed that he died at the point of impact, or shortly afterward.
At this time, police investigators are uncertain about who the driver of the vehicle was. The two surviving accident victims have both denied that they were the ones driving at the time of this traffic accident.
