MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT, NEGLIGENCE

SY KES J

1. Mr. Aubrey Clahar, a cyclist with over fifty year's experience, is a fortunate man.

He has survived being hit from his bicycle on October 31, 2000 along Victoria

Avenue in the parish of Kingston by a thirty-eight feet long bus, owned and

operated by Metropolitan Management Transport Holdings Limited, driven by Mr.

Selbourne Gayle. There are no legal points of great moment in this case. The

resolution of this case depends up on the credibility of the witnesses. The issue is

whether Mr. Clahar has established that Mr. Gayle drove the bus negligently when

the accident occurred. I should state that it is agreed that the accident occurred on

October 31, 2000 and not November 30, 2000 as pleaded in the amended

statement of claim.
