Boy seriously injured, possibly drunk
Royal Cayman Islands Police were investigating an accident in West Bay where a teenage boy apparently drove a motorcycle into a fence and flew off, breaking his shoulder.
The boy was taken to the Cayman Islands hospital following the 5.20pm accident and was expected to survive.
However, police said the teen was arrested for allegedly driving the motorcycle without its owner’s consent. He was also suspected of driving while drunk.
According to accident witnesses, the juvenile motorcycle driver lost control of the vehicle on Birch Tree Hill road, drove into a barbed wire fence and a hedge and sailed off the bike into a parked vehicle.
Police were still investigating the wreck on Monday night and asked anyone with information to call PC Wheeler at 946-6254.
