Pedestrian critical after wreck, driver arrested

The female driver involved in an overnight auto-pedestrian wreck on West Bay Road has been arrested on suspicion of drink driving.

Royal Cayman Islands Police officers said the driver’s vehicle collided with a man who was walking across the road in the vicinity of the Lone Star Bar and Grill around 10.30pm Friday.

The man, a tourist, remained hospitalized in critical condition with what police described as “serious head injuries”.

A small section of West Bay Road was closed off Saturday morning to allow police to take measurements and investigate the crash.
