Head of the Police Traffic Division, Senior Superintendent, Radcliffe Lewis, on Monday made good on his intention to charge the female driver linked to last Monday's road crash on Old Hope Road.
Two women were killed in the crash.
SSP Lewis confirmed on Monday afternoon that 33-year-old Jamaica National Building Society employee, Ann-Marie Williams was charged with two counts of manslaughter and dangerous driving.
Ms. Williams was slapped with charges in the presence of her attorney at a Corporate Area Hospital where she is recuperating from injuries sustained in the ill-fated crash.
SSP Lewis says a Corporate Area Justice of the Peace was on hand to witness Monday's proceedings.
Ms. Williams was later offered bail in the sum of $750,000.
She is booked to appear in the Corporate Area Criminal Court on Friday.
In the meantime, SSP Lewis says investigators are still awaiting the phone records requested from Ms. Williams' mobile provider.
The report, SSP Clarke notes is expected to play a key role in the investigations.
He says a thorough examination is to be undertaken of Ms. William's mobile phone records near to the period of the car crash.
