The matter regarding motorist, Pete-Roy Parchment, who was charged following last Tuesday night’s (June 16) deadly hit and run on the Thornton main road in St. Elizabeth, was put off when he appeared in court today, Monday, June 22.
This was because information reaching the court noted that the case file was yet to be prepared.
Reportedly, Parchment turned himself in to the Black River Police on Friday, June 19, and is charged with causing death by dangerous driving which claimed the life of 69-year-old Clovis Allen.
Allen was on the Thornton main road when he was hit by a car that did not stop but continued on its merry way.
He was taken to the Black River Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Parchment is set to return to court on Tuesday, June 23.
