Dana Minto, the 50-year-old nurse who reportedly struck and killed two persons with her motor vehicle in the Glendevon area of Montego Bay earlier this week, was offered bail when she appeared in the St James Parish Court today.

Minto has been charged with two counts of causing death by dangerous driving, following reports that the Toyota Ipsum all-purpose vehicle she was driving mowed down four persons along Felicity Road in Glendevon, on Monday.

Fifteen-year-old Shantae Rose, a student of Green Pond High School in the parish, and 52-year-old Franklin Hylton died following the incident, while Rose’s mother and sister were hospitalised.

In applying for bail for his client, Minto’s attorney Trevor Ho Lyn told presiding judge Kacia Grant that Minto had voluntarily turned herself in to the police.

It was also disclosed that several documents were outstanding, including the post-mortem report and the accident reconstruction report.

Judge Grant subsequently offered bail to Minto in the sum of $500,000 with surety, and ordered her to report to the police twice weekly and to surrender her travel documents.

The case will be mentioned on February 22, 2018.
