(CNSsmash.JPG): A 30-year-old man has been charged by police with Causing Death by Careless Driving after a collision last October which killed a senior police officer’s mother. Police said that following the receipt of a ruling from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), the man, who was arrested at the scene, has been formally charged and released on bail to return to court on 18 March. The smash happened around 6am on 15 October when Beverly Ramsey (59) died after her Hyundai taxi-van was hit by a Nissan box truck.

Ramsay, the mother of Acting Superintendent Angelique Howell, a senior officer with the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service, died at the scene which closed the main traffic artery for around seven hours while officers investigated the crash.

The truck driver was said to be unhurt in the accident but was arrested at the time on suspicion of causing death by careless driving and suspicion of DUI.
