Placencia man charged for S. Hway Accident

The driver involved in last Thursday’s fatal traffic accident on the Southern Highway has been charged. Twenty-one year old Clifford Calam from Placencia village has been charged with manslaughter by negligence, causing death by careless conduct, and driving without due care and attention. At the scene Calam told police that he was driving south on the Southern Highway when between miles one and two he was blinded by the lights of an oncoming vehicle. Calam swerved to avoid the other car but ran into twenty-six year old Armando Gomez who was walking on the road. Gomez was pronounced dead on arrival at the Southern Regional Hospital in Dangriga.
