Constable facing charges for fatal Bon Air crash
A police constable with nine years’ service is expected to appear before an Arima magistrate today and charged with causing the death of Arouca pensioner Joan Webb by dangerous driving. Webb, 70, of Viceroy Crescent, Bon Air Gardens, Arouca was killed on November 8, last year after a marked police vehicle crashed into the vehicle in which she was a front seat passenger. The accident occurred at Bon Air Junction, Arouca, mere hours before Webb was due to celebrate her 71st birthday with friends and relatives.
The officer surrendered at the Arouca Police Station yesterday afternoon in the company of his attorney Larry Williams, a day after a warrant for his arrest was issued by investigators. After the accident, a full investigation was ordered by Police Commissioner Dwayne Gibbs which was concluded last week. Last Friday, Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Roger Gaspard ordered that the officer be charged with the offence. The investigation was conducted by Sgt Parmessar of the Arouca police station.
