Relatives of Jizelle Salandy are questioning why she was allowed to drive herself on Sunday, although a driver was assigned to her. Saddened relatives said a 21-year-old young man was given the job, several months ago, to take Salandy to various destinations. The 21-year-old boxing star was the holder of a driving permit for the past two years, but because of her hectic schedule, management recommended that she hired a driver to take her around. Sister Josanne said: "How could my sister be allowed to drive herself? There is a young man who was hired to take her around... but something happened and my sister ended up getting behind the wheel.
Potts dispelled rumours that the driver abandoned his job. In fact, Potts said it was Salandy's decision to drive herself, after returning from the surprise party. "Jizelle had a team of young people working for her, and they were all dedicated. The young man took Jizelle to the party and back. He was sleeping when Jizelle got in the accident. "Jizelle wanted to drive, and she took the keys for the car and left. None is to be blamed for what happened... "God took her away."
