[www.inewsguyana.com] – The man allegedly responsible for the hit and run death of seventeen year old Travis Bollers was on Friday brought before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts where he was slapped with five charges in relation to the incident.
Thirty-five-year-old Delon Duncan, of 982 Block F, North Sophia denied the allegation which read that on Thursday November 26 at Pike and Sheriff Street, he drove Motor Vehicle GHH 5201 in a manner dangerous to the public thereby causing the death of Travis Bollers.
The accused also denied the charge which read that on the same occasion he drove the motor vehicle without being the holder of an insurance policy in relation to third party risks.
Additionally, he was charged for failing to stop the vehicle after the accident and for failing to report the accident to the relevant authorities. Finally, he was charged for failing to offer assistance by taking the injured Bollers to receive treatment and medical assistance.
Witnesses at the scene said that Duncan came out of his vehicle, watched Bollers injured on the road, got back into the vehicle and drove away.
The Court heard that the vehicle involved in the accident was discovered six days later at an auto-body shop in Sophia. It was revealed that the mechanic related that the accused had taken the vehicle to be repaired, supposedly in an attempt to cover his crime.
It was argued by the defence Attorney Mark Conway that the accused had turned himself into the Police, albeit, six days later, and as such he requested bail for his client.
Bail was denied for the cause of death charge while the other matters were transferred to Court 7. Duncan will return to Court on December 29.
