Overtaking blamed in wreck

A Monday evening car accident in Bodden Town that sent two people to hospital occurred after one car tried to overtake another, according to police.

Royal Cayman Islands Police officers said a Honda Integra slammed into a wall along Bodden Town Road just south of the public beach. Witnesses said the Integra appeared to be attempting to pass a Honda Civic when it lost control, clipped the side of the Civic and struck the wall.

Police said the two cars involved did not appear to be racing.

The two people inside the Integra were hospitalised with minor injuries, and were expected to recover.

The accident happened just before 7pm Monday.
