Woman dies in single-car accident

A woman died following a one-vehicle collision in Spotts Wednesday afternoon.

Royal Cayman Islands Police officers said the woman, identified as Rowena Scott, was driving a black Kia Sorrento eastbound along Shamrock Road around 2:30 p.m. when the SUV veered off the road into a stone fence.

Witnesses who drove past the accident scene Tuesday afternoon saw the woman slumped over the wheel of the car while her male passenger had been taken from the vehicle by emergency crews and was lying on the ground receiving treatment.

Police said both victims from the crash were transported to hospital. Ms. Scott was pronounced dead upon arrival. The injured man was in serious condition at press time Wednesday.

No other vehicles were believed to have been involved in the accident.
