Man charged in alleged hit-and-run accident gets $1-m bail
CLARENDON, Jamaica — A 33-year-old man implicated in the death of a five-year-old boy, was granted bail in the sum of $1million when he appeared at the Lionel Town Parish Court on Friday.
Charged with causing death by dangerous driving is William Bell of Bunkers Hill in Clarendon. Bell is said to be responsible for the death of Demarvy Davey who died in a hit-and-run accident in Frankfield, Clarendon earlier this month. Bell reportedly turned himself into the police on Tuesday, October 17.
Davey, a student who attended Bunkers Hill Primary School, was killed after a Toyota Probox motor car, which appeared to be speeding, got out of control and struck him. He was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.
According to police reports, the driver did not stop at the scene of the accident. Lawmen later intercepted the vehicle but the driver managed to flee.
Bell is to reappear before the court on Monday, December 4.
