  1. Yet another young life lost because of peoples selfish actions. It’s always the innocent ones that get hurt or lose their lives.
    Driving when under the influence of alcohol is not smart.
    When are the RCIPS going to take this seriously and get harder on these (people),how many more lifes have to be lost before they take it more seriously and the same goes for those that think it okay to text and drive, i see it everyday, not smart,i think there should be a total ban on phones when driving and make it a heavy fine and points to license,if this was the UK neither is tolerted and the deaths from DUI and PHONES is much less,problem here is Cayman thinks they are above the law,their driving is bad enough without these two things taking their attention .!!
    My condolences go out to the family and friends of this beautiful young woman.

  2. You can’t tell people who are intoxicated behind the wheel anything! They will not listen to reason! It is better you hitch a ride home than take your chance in a rolling coffin

  3. As someone who knows one of these individuals personally, my thoughts are with them all, and hopefully this will be a LOUD wake-up call for people in the future.

    My condolences to the families who’ve suffered from this event.

  4. Why has this young lady been pigeonholed as a migrant worker?
    She did not come here to work seasonally. She was not here to harvest crops for August. She did not arrive as part of a group of people who came here for these purposes. I doubt she hopped from island to island looking for work.
    Just because she did not have a white collar job does not mean she should be labeled as such. That is insulting.

  5. Condolences to the family….now….
    IN reply to thatissouncool…a lot of us here are migrant workers…it is in fact you who is pigeonholing by restricting your perspectives. The UN defines migrant worker as anyone working outside their home country…there are other definitions of a similar ilk and only one points to someone being an agricultural seasonal worker. The term is not insulting depending on how it is used.
