first_imgTwenty-five-year-old minibus driver Jamal John has been sentenced to four years, two months’ imprisonment by Senior Magistrate Judy Latchman on a causing death by dangerous driving charge.Jailed: Jamal JohnJohn, of Lot 53 Joseph Pollydore Street, Lodge, was on Thursday found guilty of causing the death of 50-year-old pedal cyclist Desmond Grandsoult in December 2017.The prosecution contended that on December 18, 2017, at Vlissengen Road, Georgetown, John drove minibus BTT 8476 in a manner dangerous to the public, thereby causing the death of Grandsoult.During the eight months’ trial, two persons who were passengers of the minibus when the accident occurred gave evidence. One of those eyewitnesses said the accused was indeed going at uncontrollable speed, and passengers had admonished him to slow down, but he had ignored those admonitions.The facts presented to the court stated that, on the day in question, the minibus was proceeding south along Vlissengen Road at a fast rate when Grandsoult, who was proceeding in the same direction in front of the minibus, attempted to cross the road and the accident resulted.It was reported that the left front side of the minibus collided with the rear of the pedal cycle, and Grandsoult fell on the roadway and was run over by the bus. The driver then swerved into a trench.The injured man was picked up in an unconscious state and rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where he was admitted to the High Dependency Unit, but died while receiving treatment.John, meanwhile, had reportedly fled the scene, and the Police had issued a wanted bulletin for his arrest.Before handing down sentence, Magistrate Latchman told the court that if John had been driving at a moderate pace, he would have seen the deceased.She declared that John had been inattentive to his driving, and had failed to exercise care, courtesy, consideration, caution and commonsense while using the roadway.The matter was prosecuted by Police Prosecutor Shawn Gonsalves.last_img read more

first_imgConor Greene and his brother Ryan scored the crucial goals that ensured Tony Boyle’s side have retained their Division One status for next season. Dungloe knew a home win over St Eunan’s would be enough to secure their status for next season, and they deservedly got it in tough conditions against St Eunan’s.Rosses Park was extremely soft due to the recent adverse weather over the last 48 hours, and conditions weren’t ideal for a free flowing game of football. There was also a stiff breeze blowing right across the pitch, but it was the home side that settled the better and two early goals provided a platform that ultimately secured the vital win.Ryan Greene scored from a free, before his brother Conor rifled home to give the home side a dream start.St Eunan’s responded with two scores of their own, but David McGinley’s side were handed a hammer blow when Ryan Greene netted after good build-up play from Dungloe.Both sides exchanged points before half-time, but Dungloe headed for changing rooms six points in the ascendancy on a score-line of 2-03 to 0-03. The second-half followed a similar pattern to that of the first-half, with chances difficult to come about due to the difficult playing conditions.St Eunan’s tried valiantly to get back into the game but couldn’t get the goals they needed to claw Dungloe back.They kicked six second-half points, but Dungloe knocked over five themselves, to run out fairly comfortable winners on a score-line of Dungloe 2-08 St Eunan’s 0-09.A great win for Dungloe, and they can now look forward to their Donegal SFC quarter-final against Malin on September 25th. Greene brothers secure Division One status for Dungloe with win over St Eunan’s was last modified: September 10th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Division OnedungloeGAAnewsSportSt Eunanslast_img read more
