Pedestrian critically injured

Police arrest driver in WB Road accident

A 60-year-old woman was struck by a
vehicle as she crossed West Bay Road at the Strand at 7pm on Monday.

At press time, the accident victim
was in critical condition at the Cayman
Islands Hospital.

The male driver was arrested on
suspicion of dangerous driving, Police Inspector Charles Best said.

West Bay Road
at the Strand remained partly closed on
Tuesday morning as police officers took measurements at the scene.

Monday night’s wreck was one of the
incidents that have left the local blood supply in dire straits, according to
hospital officials.

Cayman’s blood bank said Monday
that it is in urgent need of O negative, O positive and A positive blood.

According to a spokesman from the
Health Services Authority, hospitalisations since Monday have drained the
hospital’s blood supply.

“We urgently need individuals to
donate blood,” said Caswell Walford of the Health Services Authority.

People who want to donate blood can
go directly to the Blood Bank on the second floor of the Hospital.

Blood Donor Services Department at 244-2674 or 244-2677.
