In addition, his driver’s licence has been suspended for two years. According to an accident reconstruction report, speeding and use of a phone while driving contributed to the crash which resulted in the death of 50-year-old Althea Brown, a resident of Ridge Pen in St Elizabeth. Police reports are that about 7 am on April 1, 2019, McLean was transporting students to school when he lost control of the vehicle on the Ridge Pen main road in St Elizabeth. The bus ran off the road into Brown’s yard, where she was sitting on a stool.

A guy from St Elizabeth was sentenced to a fine of $500,000. He was reportedly on his phone while driving a bus that drove off the road and killed a woman, killing her two years ago. When Stanley McLean, a 43-year-old Southfield resident, appeared in the parish’s circuit court on Thursday, he pled guilty to causing death by unsafe driving and was forced to pay the fine. McLean has until April 30 to pay the fine or begin serving the alternative punishment of two years in jail, which was given by Justice Martin Gayle.
