Driver charged in fatal Brac crash

A Cayman Brac resident has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving in connection with a January crash that killed a teenager. Raoul Scott, 19, died on Jan. 9 in the collision on Dennis Foster Road in Cayman Brac.  

The suspect, 22, who was not named by police, is due to appear in Cayman Brac court on Oct. 22.  

Mr. Scott died after the Red Honda Civic he was driving was in a collision with a white Honda Civic traveling in the same direction along Dennis Foster Road at around 11:15 p.m., police said. Mr. Scott was taken to Faith Hospital on the Brac where he died from his injuries.  

The 22-year-old driver of the other vehicle and his 19-year-old passenger were also taken to hospital and treated for minor injuries before being discharged.  

RCIPS Superintendent Adrian Seales said in January that police suspected the two vehicles involved had been racing one another.  

Mr. Seales said at the time that laws against drag racing can be hard to enforce “unless it happens in the presence of a constable.”  

The accident was the second fatal crash to occur in the Brac during January 2015. Jose Abel Zelaya, 49, died in a fiery one-car smash on Jan. 2.
