A Nissan sedan ended up in the sea along the George Town waterfront early Saturday after its driver lost control and went over the seawall just north of the Royal Watler port terminal.

The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service reported that a 41-year-old male driver and his 43-year-old passenger went into the water just after 6:30 a.m. Saturday along North Church Street, clipping a palm tree before driving over the wall. Neither person was hurt.

The vehicle had to be pulled from water with a crane later in the morning.

Local resident David Cooke, who was out riding his racing bicycle Saturday morning, arrived shortly after the incident occurred.

“The car definitely went over the wall,” Mr. Cooke said. “[The road] was a bit wet there. I guess he just lost control going around the bend.” The RCIPS was still investigating the accident as of press time Sunday.
