Charges added in fatal crash

A man charged in the crash that killed a Saint Matthew’s University medical student is now facing additional charges in connection with the wreck.

Patrick Brooks-Dixon has previously appeared in court in connection with the deadly crash on Wednesday, 30 November on charges of causing death by dangerous driving. He was released on bail.

On Tuesday, Mr. Brooks-Dixon was further charged with causing death while driving under the influence of alcohol.

He’s scheduled to appear in court again on Monday, 9 January, 2012.

The Saint Matthew’s student who died in the crash, Richard Martin, was a successful engineer from Pennsylvania, USA, who decided to take on a second career as a doctor and came to the Cayman Islands as a member of the university’s class of 2014.

Mr. Martin was giving another student a ride home early that morning when his Honda hatchback was struck by an SUV driven by Mr. Brooks-Dixon.
