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

According to police, the accident happened just before 3 a.m. on Bobby Thompson Way at John Greer Blvd. near the George Town cricket pitch.

A Mercedes SUV and a Hyundai SUV collided head-on at the location, causing extensive damage and leaving pieces of the vehicles strewn across the street. Two women, age 45 and 32, and two men were taken to hospital as a result of the accident. One man, a 28-year-old, was driving the Hyundai while a 40-year-old male was operating the Mercedes, police said.

One male victim’s injuries were described as serious, but the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service said it appeared he would survive the crash. All other injuries were described as non-life threatening. 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.
