The Police High Command is dismissing claims two taxis which were involved in a crash which left a Manchester doctor dead were owned by members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force.

Claims had been made that police were not properly handling the investigation into the accident because the taxis involved were owned by members of the force.

In a release last evening the high command said it was aware of accusations of a cover-up.

However, it says its investigation revealed that both taxis are owned by two individuals of Manchester addresses, neither of whom are members of the JCF.

Twenty-five-year-old Megan Auden of Balvenie Drive, Manchester died as a result of injuries she sustained during a three vehicular collision on the Greenvale main road in Manchester on Saturday, July 16.
