Allegations are that on September 15, 2014, Riley was driving a Toyota Sprinter motor car with Miller on board. Upon reaching the Bog Walk Gorge in St Catherine, he overtook a line of traffic and lost control of the vehicle which plunged into the Rio Cobre. The vehicle was extensively damaged and Miller died from injuries received in the accident.

An investigation was launched which resulted in Riley being charged by the police. He has made numerous court appearances and has maintained his innocence.
