A family in the Toledo District says they’ve received justice after a man was charged for a road traffic accident that claimed the life of their family’s patriarch. On August 24, police visited mile 43 on the Thomas Vincent Highway and found two men lying on the pavement near a motorcycle. The men, 52-year-old Reymundo Choco and Hector Hernandez were traveling to Bella Vista Village when they were hit head-on by an SUV coming in the opposite direction. Police say the driver of the SUV, 30-year-old Edwardo Alfredo Oliva was then asked to provide a blood specimen and was issued an acknowledgment form. Choco and Hernandez were transported to the Independence Poly Clinic for medical treatment. However, Choco was later ferried to the KHMH where he succumbed to his injuries two days later. Yesterday, Oliva was arrested and charged for manslaughter by negligence; causing death by careless conduct and driving a motor vehicle without due care and attention. He was offered, and met bail in the sum of six thousand dollars, with a return date of December 12. Choco’s family reached out to Love News and stated that they believe the police only acted after they took to social media to call for justice.
