Singh appeared in court on July 27 and was released on self bail after the prosecution said she had the right-of-way when she allegedly hit Glen, a nurse of Barr Street, Kitty, George-town.

Police Corporal Venetta Pindar had told the court that on the day in question, at about 5pm, Singh was proceeding north along Camp Street when she collided with Glen, who was proceeding west along Lamaha Street on his motorcycle.

Pindar said that Singh was “driving through the green traffic light, which she had gotten,” when she collided with Glen. Glen was rushed to the hospital where he later succumbed.
