Man Charged Over Carolyn’s Death

Police have charged a 65-year-old man after the death of Carolyn Buchan earlier this month.

The man, who has not been named, will appear in Court in the morning.

Police said: ‘Today at 3:52pm a 65yr old Male from the Douglas area has been charged with the following offences in relation to the death of Carolyn Buchan.

  1. Causing Death by Driving without Due Care and Attention
  2. Failing to Stop at the scene of an accident
  3. Failing to Report an Accident.

Police have also confirmed that the people arrested on March 21 for these same offences, whom were on police bail, have today been formally released from police bail, with no further action being taken.

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Newey has stated: ‘This investigation has been the priority of the constabulary to establish the circumstances surrounding how and why Caroyln Buchan died in Marathon Avenue on Sunday 20th March and to find those responsible.  This has been a complex investigation with numerous lines of enquiries involving CCTV, following up on information provided by the Manx public and specialist scientific support from the UK. All of this has come together to allow us to charge a 65yr old man for these offences. My thoughts remain with the family and friends of Carolyn at this time.’
