Hit-and-run driver bailed
St Peter resident Derrick Sherland Nowell was today released on $5,000 bail with one surety after appearing in the Holetown Magistrates Court on seven traffic offences, following a hit-and-run accident in Speightstown.
Nowell, of Battaleys, is charged with driving without a valid driver’s licence, failing to stop at an accident; driving without due care and reasonable consideration; without tax; without insurance; failing to register a motor vehicle, and fraudulent use of number plates.
He is due to reappear in court on November 27.
Thirteen-year-old Zawadi Gilkes, a student at the Alexandra School, was left nursing injuries from the accident.
