Car sails through roadblock, smashes house

RCIPS officers in Bodden
Town were investigating a
single vehicle accident in Breakers early Saturday morning, where a vehicle
apparently blew through a police roadblock before smashing into a home.

Just before 3am Saturday, a police officer on patrol in Breakers
reported a one vehicle accident at 2075
Bodden Town Rd. and requested that an ambulance be
dispatched to the location.

Prior to the accident, police said the vehicle involved passed through a
roadblock being conducted by Bodden
Town officers at the
junction of Frank Sound Road
and Seaview an extremely high speed.

Officers discovered shortly after that the same vehicle had run off the
road in Breakers, overturned and collided with a house. The house and car both sustained
extensive damages.

A 19 year-old female passenger was treated at the hospital for minor
injuries and released while the 35 year-old male driver, who had no visible injuries,
was arrested for various traffic offences including dangerous driving and driving
without insurance.

Anyone who might have witnessed the accident can contact Sergeant Mason
at the Bodden Town police station on 947 2220.

  1. Assuming the report is accurate:
    -the driver should be banned for life from driving; and if not having the right to stay in Cayman, should be deported immediately after serving his prison sentence;
    -if a Caymanian, or person with right to reside, should be banned for life from driving,and serve the full sentence imposed for his various offences;
    -should be made to pay the full costs of Police, Transport department, Hospital etc expenditure; if unable to pay, to serve such additional prison time as the Court directs;
    and even then he/she will not have re-paid the true costs to the people and Government of Cayman.
    When will the Government learn that condign punishment must be visited upon such lawbreakers (at 3 am ) or our society will fall apart.
    And this is quite apart from the effect of these reports upon potential visitors to Cayman.
    Why on earth would anyone want to buy a condo, or spend a (very expensive) holiday in a place where the law is not respected, guns and violence are rapidly becoming the norm, and our leaders can only bicker about their own shortcomings?
