[www.inewsguyana.com] – A minibus driver charged with causing death by dangerous driving was remanded to prison on Monday, July 20 by Magistrate Ann McLennan.
Thirty-eight-year-old Fiztroy Alder of Lot 30 East Ruimveldt, Georgetown, was not required to plead to the charge, which was laid indictable. Particulars of the case state that on July 17 at Durban Street, Werk-en-Rust, Georgetown, he drove motor vehicle BTT 3835 in a manner dangerous to the public, thereby causing the death of Romel Juner.
According to Police Prosecutor, Corporal Dinero Jones, the driver does not deserve bail due to the rate at which he was driving on the day in question. The prosecutor told the court that when Almer reached the intersection at Lime and Durban Streets, he was unable to swerve away and collided with the victim, who was crossing the road.
The Prosecutor said the victim was pitched several feet away from the impact point and was pronounced dead on arrival at the Georgetown Public Hospital. Bail was denied and the matter was adjourned to August 10.
