Licence suspended

Driver in fatal accident loses driving privileges

The driver responsible for the accident that claimed the life a 19-year-old eight years ago, Wednesday had his licence suspended for six months, and was ordered to pay $3,000 to the High Court.

Madam Justice Margaret Reifer handed down the sentence to Tyrone Dacosta Cheltenham, of #27 Durham Close, Grazettes, St Michael in the No. 2 Supreme Court.

Cheltenham pleaded guilty on November 3, 2016 to dangerous driving, after being charged with causing the death of Renaldo Drax Williams in an October 24, 2008 accident on the Cummins section of the ABC Highway.

At the time, he told the judge: “Ma’am, I am sorry for what happen in the accident. I am sorry that someone has been hurt. I see the accident now and then flashing in front of me.”

Cheltenham, who was represented by attorney-at-law Keith Simmons, has three months to pay the $3,000 fine or he will spend six months in jail.

Senior Crown Counsel Krystal Delaney was the prosecutor in the case.
