Home News Mechanic charged for causing death by dangerous driving
A mechanic was on Monday taken before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts to answer to the charge of causing death by dangerous driving.
Leroy Bagenot of Kuru-Kururu, Linden-Soesdyke Highway, denied the charge which stated that on November 7, 2018, he drove motor lorry GXX 1162 in a dangerous manner causing the death of Mohammed Kalamadeen at Friendship Public Road, East Bank Demerara.
The 29-year-old father of one allegedly lost control of the motor lorry he was driving, which caused him to swerve into the opposite lane and collide with the truck the deceased was driving. Kalamadeen was first rushed to the Diamond Diagnostic Centre and later transferred to the Georgetown Public Hospital as a result of the extent of his injuries. He, however, succumbed to his injuries in December 2018.
The defendant was represented by Attorney-at-Law Maxwell McKay, who told the court that his client is not a flight risk and he is willing to adhere to any condition imposed by the court.
Police Prosecutor Mansfield did not object to bail.
Bail was granted in the sum of $350,000. As a condition for bail, Bagenot is required to report to the Grove Police Station once per week until the completion of his trial. The case will continue on April 30, 2019.
