Commissioner of Police Colin John has suspended the driver’s licence of Jayron Hull, a police officer who drives for the Criminal Investigations Department, over the video in which a minivan is recorded cornering on two wheels.
iWitness News was reliably informed that the police chief has acted against the Green Hill resident as the Traffic Branch prepares to bring charges against him in relation to the incident.
The commissioner of police can temporarily suspend any driver’s permit in this way.
Sources tell iWitness News that Hull, who enlisted in the police force about two years ago, is alleged to have been driving the minivan when the incident, which was recorded on video occurred in North Union.
Several persons are seen in the minivan as it corners so hard that the wheels on the right side lifted off the road briefly.
A number of persons, including students, are at the left side of the road near to the where the incident occurred and one of them appear to be recording the van on a mobile device and celebrating after two of the wheels left the road.
On Sunday, police said that the Traffic Department has launched investigations into several videos that were being circulated on social media “depicting motorists engaged in dangerous and reckless driving on public roads.
“The RSVGPF wishes to assure the general public that after the investigations are completed, the culprits would be held accountable according to the law,” the police statement said.
“The roads in St. Vincent and the Grenadines are not racetracks. They are to be used with due care and attention, and consideration for other users. Therefore, the RSVGPF calls on all motorists to desist from this reckless behaviour and drive carefully and responsibly on public roads.”
