The medical student who turned himself into police after last Sunday’s hit-and-run on Sir George Walter Highway has been granted bail.
Chirjeet Singh Biring appeared in Traffic Court on Thursday charged with dangerous driving and failing to report last Sunday’s near-fatal hit-and-run.
Biring was granted bail in the sum of $20,000 and was required to pay $5,000 to secure his release.
He is scheduled to reappear in court on September 3.
The 24-year-old medical student who resides at Utopia Park Apartments on Sir George Walter Highway turned himself in to police on Monday where he was questioned and later released before being charged on Wednesday.
Police charged the Canadian resident who is enrolled at the American University of Antigua for hitting 41-year-old Garvin Crump and fleeing the scene without reporting the crime.
He is alleged to have been driving the Subaru Impreza that struck and injured Crump at approximately 3 a.m. on Sunday.
Crump suffered multiple injuries to include a broken left leg, a broken right shoulder and  significant bruising.
When Biring surrendered to police at Police Headquarters on Monday, he was accompanied by his attorney.
