Car wrecks in Eastern districts

Two major car accidents were reported within five hours of each other Saturday in the Cayman Islands’ Eastern districts.

The first crash was reported to 911 just before 4pm. A caller had spotted a vehicle turned over along Bodden Town Road near Breakers.

A 55-year-old woman inside the overturned vehicle was taken to George Town hospital and was expected to recover. She told police she had swerved on the road to avoid hitting a dog and lost control of the car which then flipped.

Another wreck happened just after 8.30pm at the junction of Frank Sound Road and Bodden Town Road. A 911 caller witnessed an argument happening at the accident scene there.

Police said a Honda Civic and a Ford Escort had collided, injuring the 59-year-old driver of the Escort.

The driver of the Civic was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and taken to Bodden Town police station.
