According to police, at around 1.20am Thursday a Honda Civic was being driven on West Bay Road toward George Town when it left the road and overturned close to the Coral Stone Club.
The driver and passenger were both thrown from the vehicle at the location, which is between The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman and Foster’s Food Fair at the Strand.
Emergency services attended the scene and both men were taken to the Cayman Islands Hospital. A 33-year-old male was pronounced dead following the crash, while a 28-year-old man was being treated for serious injuries.
The 28-year-old was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and suspicion of DUI, police said. However, officers stated they could not immediately determine who was operating the vehicle and had only arrested the 28-year-old initially to “preserve evidence” in the case.
No charges had been filed in connection with the crash at press time.
The dead 33-year-old man was identified as Marjan Mladenovski. He worked as a server at the Marriott hotel.
Mr. Mladenovski was married to his wife, Gloria, here on Grand Cayman.
A section of West Bay Road between the Ritz and the Strand was shut down during morning rush hour Thursday and reopened around 9am.
