Royal Cayman Islands Police confirm the driver of a Honda Civic that crashed into a tree near the riding stables off Linford Pierson Highway Wednesday morning has died.
He was identified by friends and family as Dwayne Cayasso, 26, of George Town.
Mr. Cayasso was taken off life support late Thursday morning following the early Wednesday crash on the Linford Pierson that also injured a 24-year-old passenger in the Civic.
“The investigation [into the accident] has led us to suspect speed and alcohol,” said RCIPS Inspector Adrian Barnett.
Wednesday’s crash is the eighth fatal accident to occur in the Cayman Islands during 2011.
Police were still investigating the cause of the 2.20am Wednesday crash.
