Bus driver pleads guilty in student's death - To be sentenced tomorrow

January 28, 2016

A bus driver in whose vehicle a 15-year-old schoolboy was killed almost four years ago pleaded guilty and is to be sentenced in the St Catherine Circuit Court tomorrow.

He is Jermaine Morris, 32, from Waterford in Portmore, St Catherine.

Morris is charged with the death of Lennox Lloyd, a student of Ascot High School in St Catherine.

When Morris appeared in the St Catherine Circuit Court on Monday, he admitted that he was guilty of causing death by dangerous driving. The court ordered that a social enquiry report be done on the accused before sentencing.

Allegations are that on Tuesday May 29, 2012, Morris was driving a Toyota Hiace in St Catherine, when the vehicle overturned near the Edgewater community, killing Lloyd and injuring

several other students.

Morris fled the scene, but later turned himself in to police investigators. He was subsequently charged by Sergeant Max Burgher of the St Catherine South police.
