[www.inewsguyana.com] – A maintenance worker attached to Church’s Chicken was today remanded to prison, following a charge of causing death by dangerous driving.
Twenty – eight – year – old Jermaine Carrol pleaded not guilty to two charges, one of which alleged that on Tuesday, June 12 at Freeman Street, East La Penitence, Georgetown, he drove motorcar PPP 5931 in a manner dangerous to the Public thereby causing the death of Clement Joseph Collis.
The other charge alleged that on the same day, at Freeman Street, he drove the said vehicle when the third party insurance was not enforced at the time.
Police Prosecutor, Bharat Mangru said the defendant was the driver of motor vehicle and on that day he was proceeding at a fast rate along west of the southern side of Freeman Street. Subsequently, he collided with the decease; a 7-year-old student of St Pius Primary School who was at the time standing on a concrete bridge.
He said the vehicle pinned the deceased to the gate and was pronounced dead on arrival at the Georgetown Public Hospital. Mangru opposed bail on the grounds that the defendant was charged with several other minor matters and has been avoiding the police.
Carrol was unrepresented and was remanded to prison until July 4.
