US national tries to leave country after killing two in road crash
Sosua, Dominican Republic.- US citizen James Bush was arrested at Gregorio Luperón international airport in Puerto Plata while trying to leave the country after running over two Haitian citizens on the Puerto Plata-Montellano road in the early Sunday.
Two Haitians, a man and a woman, lost their lives after being hit by the gray Honda SUV, registration plate number G341317, driven by the 46-year old man.
Bush tried to escape from the country on Monday afternoon on American Airlines flight 935 to New York, to evade Dominican justice for the deaths and material damage caused by last Sunday’s accident.
James Bush was handed over to the public prosecutor for traffic in Puerto Plata, Dorca Alvarado Reyes, for processing in connection with the deaths of Ketia Joseph and Lorenzo Desir, aged 20 and 43.
Puerto Plata judge Osvaldo Bonilla ordered Bush to be held in preventive custody as he represented a flight risk.
