Charges in deadly crash

The man who Royal Cayman Islands Police said was driving a van that collided with an SUV carrying a woman and her toddler in November has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving.

Thirty-nine year-old Shaney Tania Bar-On, known in Cayman as Shaney Kol, died in the crash on the Esterley Tibbetts Highway. Her child, Zoe, survived the accident.

Police have charged Emelio Borden Castillo, 37, who they said was driving the Red Sail Sports van which struck Mrs. Kol’s vehicle.

Mr. Castillo’s case came before the court Wednesday and was scheduled for trial on 23 February.

The accident occurred during the afternoon of 19 November when Mrs. Kol’s Honda CRV collided head-on with the van.

The Kol family moved back to Australia shortly after the accident, according to a statement from the Montessori by the Sea school which was issued the day after her death.

Mrs. Kol’s son, Max, attended classes at Montessori where she was known as an avid volunteer.

Mrs. Kol and her husband, Charles, had not been in Cayman very long before the crash occurred, according to school officials.
