A driver of a silver Honda that collided with an SUV, forcing the driver of that vehicle to crash into the A. L. Thompson fence, fled after the crash Wednesday night.

Police said the collision occurred shortly before 11 p.m.

Emergency personnel were dispatched to the scene by the 911 Communication Centre to the Butterfield roundabout in George Town. When they arrived, they found the female driver of the SUV, a red Ford Explorer.

According to a statement from the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service, “This accident occurred when a second vehicle, described as a silver Honda, collided with the front of the red Ford truck, causing the driver of the truck to lose control of the vehicle and crash into the fence.

“The driver of the silver sedan vehicle did not stop and await the police.”
