Biker hurt in wreck

The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service is investigating a two vehicle accident that happened Monday on Shamrock Road near Savannah Meadows.

The 911 Emergency Communications Centre received a call at 9.22pm from the driver of a Nissan Frontier who said he was involved in an accident with a motorbike.

Police and medics responded and found that a 21-year-old man, who had been riding a Zongshen dirt bike, was knocked to the ground with an injury to his right leg. Police were told that the collision occurred when the Nissan turned from Savannah Avenue onto Shamrock Road and hit the motorbike that was traveling towards Bodden Town.

The injured man was taken to George Town hospital where he was treated for a broken leg and released. The 61-year-old driver of the Nissan Frontier was subsequently arrested on suspicion of DUI.

Anyone who witnessed the crash or believes they saw the vehicles prior to the crash should contact Acting Chief Inspector Derrick Elliott on 946 6254.
