FORTY-two-year old Lloyd Gregory Williams of Soesdyke Public Road was on Monday placed on $500,000 bail after he appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan charged with causing death by dangerous driving.The allegation stated that on December 2, 2016 at Haag Bosch Access Road at Eccles East Bank Demerara, he drove motor lorry GPP 1637 in a dangerous manner causing the death of Seeta Williams.

Williams, who is a truck driver attached to Chung Enterprise (a construction company), was represented by Attorney-at-Law Nigel Hughes, who described his client as an outstanding member of his community.

No objection to bail was made by Police prosecutor Neville Jeffers. However he asked that conditions be applied to the granting of bail.
Magistrate McLennan granted Williams bail along with the conditions.

Williams was asked to lodge his passport at the Georgetown Magistrate’s Court Registry and he has to report to the Madewini Police Outpost until the outcome of the matter.

Reports indicate that the woman was crushed by a truck that was proceeding along the Haag Bosch Access Road at Eccles. It was reported that the woman was hit by the tray of the truck first before it ran her over.

An eyewitness recounted that the driver of the truck had stopped at a nearby shop to make a purchase before the incident occurred.
