Four people were hospitalized after an early Saturday morning crash in central George Town.

According to police, the accident happened around 2:45 a.m. on Bobby Thompson Way near John Greer Blvd. near the George Town cricket pitch.

A black Mercedes SUV, driven by a 40-year-old man, and a red Hyundai Santa Fe SUV, driven by a 28-year-old man and carrying a 45-year-old woman and a 32-year-old woman, collided head-on at the location, causing extensive damage and leaving pieces of the vehicles strewn across the street. All four people were taken to the George Town hospital with non-life-threatening injuries as a result of the accident.

The male victim’s injuries were described as serious, but the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service said it appeared he would survive the crash. There was no immediate word on what led to the accident.

Bobby Thompson Way between the Linford Pierson Highway and John Greer Blvd. was closed for several hours Saturday morning to allow for accident investigation and clean-up.
