RAYON Alves appeared in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday charged with two counts of causing death by dangerous driving and was granted a total of $600, 000 bail by Magistrate Leron Daly.

Alves denied the charges when they were read to him.

It is alleged that on February 14 he drove motor car PVV 1289 dangerously and caused the deaths of Dakera Gritten and Tonika Halley.

Reports are that about 00:30hrs, Alves was proceeding at a fast rate of speed along Homestretch Avenue, Georgetown.

As he was overtaking vehicles he lost control of the motor car and collided with a GPL utility pole. This resulted in the car toppling several times before coming to rest in a trench, in an upturned position.

Some of the occupants were removed from the car in unconscious states by public-spirited citizens, who had rushed to the scene to render assistance.

Gritten and Halley who were badly injured were rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation. Gritten was pronounced dead, while Halley succumbed to her injuries while receiving treatment.
It is alleged that Alves fled the scene after the accident. He was arrested and escorted to the East La Penitence Police Station where he was placed into custody and charged with the present offences.

Magistrate Leron Daly ordered that Alves be placed on $300,000 bail for each count of the charge before adjourning the case to March 15.
