Airport shutdown

A fire engine of the George Town Fire Station overturned near the runway of Owen Roberts International Airport at 10.03am Wednesday, temporarily halting all air traffic to and from Grand Cayman. According to a source at the fire station, a junior driver with 10 years experience with the service was driving the water-laden truck near the runway and tipped over when negotiating a curve. The driver, who was the only person in the vehicle at the time of the accident, was taken to the Cayman Islands Hospital by ambulance with what was described as minor injuries. The truck involved was about five years old. New trucks cost about $1 million. Photo: Alan Markoff
