Woman, Teen Killed in San Jose Crash on George Price Highway
SAN JOSE, Calif. (Oct. 8, 2018) — Jarinet Cowo, 16, and Cindy Cowo 26, sisters who lived in Succotz Village, were killed in a solo crash Saturday morning on the George Price Highway.
The collision took place about 4 a.m. not far Succotz Village. The two sisters were passengers in a vehicle driven by Carlos Martinez, 53, a contractor of Belmopan. He was driving a grey and white Toyota RAV 4 on the highway when he allegedly lost control of the vehicle between miles 71 and 72. The vehicle went off the roadway and into the Mopan River where it submerged under water.
The two Cowo sisters were trapped in the vehicle. Meanwhile, Martinez managed to escape unharmed.
Rescue workers extricated the two women who were then rushed to San Ignacio Hospital. They were pronounced dead at the hospital.
Police have arrested Martinez on undisclosed charges.
Those of us at Johnson Attorneys Group offer our condolences to the family of Cindy and Jarinet Cowo as they cope with this tragedy.
