In an update to the triple fatality on Tuesday that claimed the lives of three men, police have formally arrested and charged Joel Disus for three counts of manslaughter by negligence and three counts of causing death by careless conduct.  He was also slapped with a slew of traffic offences, including drove motor vehicle without due care and attention and failure to keep to the extreme right hand of the road. Disus was arraigned before Magistrate Tricia Pitts-Anderson on Thursday afternoon. He was given bail of ten thousand dollars, plus two sureties of the same amount. He is to reappear in court on December twenty-eighth, 2022. Disus, a twenty-one-year-old Guinea Grass resident, was the driver of a Silva’s bus that collided head-on with an Isuzu Dmax pickup truck on the morning of September twenty-seventh on the Philip Goldson Highway in Sand Hill Village. All three persons who were travelling in the pickup – James Dawson, Brandon Gillett and Eustace Dawson Junior – perished in the RTA.
