Drivers from Grand Cayman’s Eastern Districts were held up in long traffic snarls this morning following a fatal crash in Prospect.
The crash occurred around 7am near Lantern Point and the new bypass extension. Police were on scene directing traffic and asked for drivers’ patience.
Witnesses who drove by the accident scene said it appeared the silver sedan-type vehicle involved in the smash was virtually unrecognisable, apart from the trunk.
Officers investigating the wreck confirmed one person in the vehicle had died. It was unclear how the crash happened.
The crash was one of a number of accidents which happened Tuesday morning between Bodden Town and Prospect. The Caymanian Compass will have more details in Wednesday’s editions.
