Hit-and-run crash hurts two

Royal Cayman Islands Police are looking for
the driver of a car that left the scene of a George Town accident Wednesday.

At about 10:40pm Wednesday, a motorcycle
was travelling along West Bay Road towards George Town when it was struck by a
black motorcar which police said was turning right from West Bay Road into the
parking area at Jet Nightclub.

The driver and passenger were thrown from
the motorcycle. Both were hurt – the rider suffered injuries to his arm and the
bike passenger to his shoulder.

Both men were taken to the Cayman Islands
Hospital in George Town for treatment. The passenger was released Thursday
morning but the rider remains in hospital.

The driver of the black car, which has been
described to police as being a Nissan Skyliner, drove off from the scene before
police arrival.

Any witnesses to the incident, or anyone
who knows of a black vehicle which has new accident damage is asked to contact
their nearest police station, the Traffic Management Unit on 946-6254 or the
confidential Crime Stoppers number 800-8477 (TIPS).
