Timothy Horatio, the off-duty Policeman who drove minibus BPP 7944 and reportedly caused the death of Dillon Linton, 21, was on Friday granted bail when he appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.
His Attorney, Darren Wade, made a successful bail application at his client’s second appearance before Magistrate Leron Daly.
The lawyer explained that since the accident, the other occupants of the minibus are recovering and, as such, bail should be granted to his client.
The Prosecution had no objections to bail and explained to the court that the defendant has assisted the family of the deceased with funeral expenses.
Bail was granted at $300,000 and the defendant will make his next court appearance on September 30, 2016.
On the day of the accident, Horatio was reportedly drag-racing another minibus when he lost control and slammed into a power pole before crashing into Linton’s motorcycle.
Linton sustained injuries and succumbed the following morning at the Georgetown Public Hospital.
At the time of the accident, the minibus had several passengers all of whom sustained minor injuries.
