A 21-year-old man was killed early Saturday in a one-car accident on West Bay Road.
Police identified the man as Lanado Martin Waugh from George Town.
The crash happened around 2:14 a.m. near the Galleria Plaza on West Bay Road, police said. The car had been traveling in the direction of George Town.
Chief Inspector Claudia Brady said Mr. Waugh was the only occupant of the vehicle, a silver-colored Honda Accord. He was trapped inside the car and emergency services reported that he appeared “unconscious and was not breathing,” she said.
He was taken to the Cayman Islands Hospital where he was pronounced dead, Chief Inspector Brady said.
Including this accident, there have been 10 fatalities as a result of vehicle accidents in the Cayman Islands so far this year. In 2014, there were four fatalities caused by vehicle accidents.
