Man killed in Sunday morning George Town crash

The vehicle is removed from the scene Sunday.

A 28-year-old man was killed when his silver Mazda Roadster swerved off the road and collided with a chain link fence in the early hours of Sunday.

Michael Eden was pronounced dead at the Cayman Islands Hospital following the crash in George Town, close to the Pasadora Place shopping plaza just after 4 a.m.

The badly damaged vehicle was being towed from the scene early Sunday.

Mr. Eden was the sole occupant of the car and no other vehicles were involved, according to a police statement.

Police said the car had careered off the road, through the fence and into the yard of a home on Smith Road, at the junction of Anthony Drive and Melrose Lane.

The accident is under investigation by the Traffic Department.

The crash marks the second fatal traffic accident within a month.

Motorcyclist Randy Johnson, 62, was killed in a collision with an SUV on South Church Street last month.

Anyone with information on Sunday’s accident is asked call George Town Police Station at 949-4222 or to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-8477 (TIPS) or online at www.tipsubmit.com.

  1. I am very sad to hear about the tragic death of another young Caymanian, I give his family my deepest. sympathy .

    I think that we should be looking at the Importation of certain vehicles with horsepower and speed , because I think we don’t have the roads or drivers for these kind of vehicles. We can’t continue to have this kind of carnage .
