18 year old motorcyclist Cjea Weekes who sustained paralysing injuries reportedly during a police chase last Wednesday died on Sunday February 6th 2022 at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital.
His mother is speaking out and claims her son’s death is as a result of police recklessness.
On Hot 97 Monday morning, the grieving mother related what her son told her about the police chase that reportedly started between Campden Park and Questelles, and resulted in the accident in Vermont.
The mother noted that her son did not have his motorcycle permit on him and was afraid of the police hence the reason why he might have tried to get away from them.
Weekes said she still cannot come to grips with the death of her beloved son who would have been celebrating his 19th birthday next week.
