Education Minister Rolston Anglin
was involved in a minor car accident early Thursday in West Bay.
The Caymanian Compass spoke with
Mr. Anglin later on Thursday morning. He said he was resting at home and was
not able to attend a seminar for new teachers being held at that time.
According to Mr. Anglin, he was
driving home along Willie Farrington Drive in West Bay around 1am and
apparently nodded off behind the wheel and drove off the road. No other vehicles
were involved and no one was hurt.
The minister said he was not
injured, merely shaken by the event.
“I’m just working too many long
hours,” he said. “I need to take better care of myself.”
The Royal Cayman Islands Police
Service received a report of a car accident on Willie Farrington Drive around
1.25am Thursday. Police reported that the vehicle involved had left the road
and struck a rock.
According to police, the male
driver was taken to hospital with slight hand injuries and later released.
