'Coward' driver in hit and run remains at large

The driver in the hit and run accident which claimed the life of 70 year old Jocelyn Taitt, a Canadian citizen, is yet to give themselves up to police and her relatives are now pleading to the culprit to come forward.

Taitt, who had just arrived in Trinidad on Friday (Jan 22nd), was reportedly attempting to cross the road near a construction site just after 11:00am on Saturday morning ( Jan 23rd).

Although a few cars stopped, the driver of a white Mazda 3 reportedly over took a lane of cars and struck the woman pitching her several feet in the air before she landed on the walkway around the Savannah. Taitt died on the spot.

Meanwhile there is no word yet on whether the driver of the Mazda turned themselves in. Relatives are pleading for the driver to 'do the right thing and turn yourself in.'

Police are asking anyone with information to contact them on 999, 555 or contact the Belmont Police Station on 624-1848/7818.
