Driver denies causing death

| 27/08/2013

(CNS): Fitzroy Roach (30) pleaded not guilty to causing the death by dangerous driving of 59-year-old Beverley Elaine Ramsay last year in a crash on the Esterley Tibbetts Highway. Roach, who will face trial in March next year, some 18 months after the crash, also denied driving without being qualified. Roach was originally arrested on suspicion of DUI but there was no indication when he appeared in Grand Court Friday if the crown is still relying on drink as the cause of the road death. The accident happened at around 6am on Tuesday 16 October, when Roach, who was driving a Nissan box truck towards George Town, hit Ramsey, who was driving her Hyundai van travelling towards West Bay.

Ramsey died at the scene of the accident near to the AL Thompson roundabout. Roach, who is understood to be a Jamaican national, was bailed to return for the trial next year.
