Crash injures one

The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service is investigating a single vehicle car crash that took place during the early hours of Saturday, which left one man seriously injured.

The 911 Emergency Communications Centre received a call at around 3.05am reporting that a car had run off Shamrock Road, in the vicinity of Trumbach Drive, and collided with a tree.

Police and medics responded to the scene and found an unconscious man in a Black Chrysler PT Cruiser that had been travelling west along Shamrock Road. The 24-year-old driver sustained injuries to the head and was taken to hospital. He has since regained consciousness and is in a stable but serious condition.

Scenes of Crime officers processed the scene and an accident reconstructionist is carrying out investigations. Anyone who witnessed the crash or believes they saw the vehicle prior to the crash is asked to contact Chief Inspector Courtney Myles on 926 0649.

The RCIPS is reminding drivers to maintain safe driving practices and ensure that their holiday season is not marred by carelessness on the roads. Motorists are warned not to drink and drive as offenders will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
