After spending just over a week on remand for the deadly Corentyne hit-and-run accident, which claimed the lives of two persons, Vivendra Ramdharry was released on Thursday on $250,000 bail.

On March 22, 2022, Ramdharry, 37, of No. 69 Village, Upper Corentyne, was remanded to prison by Magistrate Alex Moore in the Springlands Magistrate’s Court.

He was charged with two counts of causing death by dangerous driving, two counts of failure to render assistance, and failure to report an accident.

The 37-year-old man was not required to plead to the two counts of causing death by dangerous driving but pleaded not guilty to the other charges.

However, when Ramdharry made his second court appearance today, Magistrate Moore released him on $250,000 bail with the condition that he lodge his passport with the court.

The initial case was adjourned to April 14, and Attorney-at-law Bernard Da Silva represented the accused.

This publication had reported that on March 18, 2022, Ramdharry drove motor car PVV 1015 in a manner dangerous to the public, thereby causing the deaths of Tony Lakeram, 20, and Felicia Fernandes, 28.

Reports are that the accident occurred at about 23:20h on the No. 70 Village, Public Road.

Preliminary investigations revealed that Ramdharry was allegedly speeding along the roadway when it collided with the duo. Instead of rendering assistance, he reportedly continued on his journey.

As a result, the duo sustained injuries on their bodies and was picked up in an unconscious state and taken to the Skeldon Public Hospital, where they both were pronounced dead on arrival. Ramdharry was arrested the following day in Kitty, Georgetown.
