Police have issued summonses for three drivers in connection with what appeared to be drag racing on the Arnos Vale-Sion Hill public road.
The video of the high-speed melee, which included overtaking around corners and a U-turn at Sion Hill, was captured in a video, supposedly recorded by a passenger in one of the vehicles.
Police said Wednesday that on completion of an investigation, they have instituted proceedings, by way of summonses, against Javon Jardine, 23, of Mt. Pleasant, T.J. Deane, 21, of Prospect and J-Lani Douglas, 25, of Rockies, for reckless driving.
The men have been summoned to appear before the Kingstown Magistrate’s Court on Friday to answer to the complaint in connection with the April 11 incident.
“Head of the Traffic Department, Superintendent of Police, Kenneth John wishes to advise all motorists to drive with caution and exercise due care and attention at all times,” the police said in a statement.
The traffic chief further advised that all acts of reckless and dangerous driving would be prosecuted according to law. “DRIVE CAREFULLY AND STAY SAFE!” police said in the statement.
