Trio village, TOLEDO. Monday, January 16, 2017. A resident of Trio village in the Toledo district, Charles Dewey Sellers, is recuperating from injuries sustained over the weekend in a confrontation with loggers.

Sellers says that on Saturday he saw a couple of persons who were identified as loggers and he went over to question them about their activities in the area which is near to his house.

Sellers says that at first, the driver of the pickup truck stopped and he asked to see the permit they had to cut wood in the area.

That was when the father of the man who was driving the pickup truck said to “go, go,” and the driver sped off.

“I am in bad pain,” Sellers told PGTV News via telephone on Monday morning as he prepared to go to the Southern Regional Hospital in Dangriga for medical attention.

Sellers says that it is his understanding that the police picked up the person who was driving the logging truck that ran him over; but it is not certain if any charges have been brought against that man.

    I hope the people who did this to him get what they deserve. He never hurt anyone. Such a good man. It is ridiculous that people think it is okay to run away from people they have just hurt. And the police better start doing their jobs.

    She is right, this man would never do this to anyone. Crimes like this should not go unseen regardless of the offender and his or her relationship with the police or local government. Theft is a crime, attempted murder is a bigger crime. Belize stand up!
