[www.inewsguyana.com] – An International Development consultant, charged with causing death by dangerous driving, was granted $150,000 bail by Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry.
Winston Cramer of Go Slow Avenue, Tucville, pleaded not guilty to the charge, which alleged that on April 10 at Camp and Quamina Streets, he drove motor car PKK 7896 in a manner dangerous to the public, thereby causing the death of Lennox Allicock.
Police Prosecutor, Michal Grant told the Court that on the day in question, around 16:00 hours, Cramer was proceeding east along the northern carriageway of Quamina Street when he failed to stop at the Camp Street intersection, when motor car PNN 3718 drove into his path resulting in a collision.
Allicock, a pedal cyclist, who was on the northern side of Quamina Street, was struck down and the two other persons who were with him received injuries.
He was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation where he succumbed to his injuries a few days later.
The defendant was represented by Attorney-at-Law, Adrian Thompson, who told the court that his client was placed on $40,000 station bail and reported to the station voluntarily. He argued that Cramer in an effort to avoid a collision, swerved but unfortunately, he struck the pedal cyclist.
Cramer has no prior or pending matters before the Court and the matter will call again on September 9.
