A motorcyclist received head injuries and broken bones in a collision Sunday night on West Bay Road near Cayman Beach Suites.

His injuries were non-life-threatening, according to police officials. He was reported as being in stable condition at Cayman Islands Hospital Monday.

Officials said West Bay Road was closed from 7:30 p.m., when the accident occurred, until midnight, when police completed their investigation.

The injured man was driving a black Suzuki motorcycle when it collided with a gray Honda CR-V.

The driver of the Honda, a 40-year-old man from George Town, was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and released on bail.  Police said there was no evidence of alcohol being a factor in the crash.


  1. Although we didn’t see the crash itself, my husband and I were in the Lone Star Bar just prior to the crash, sitting at seats right by the roadside. We saw the bike go past us, it was absolutely flying down the main road at a ridiculous speed and we commented that it was an accident waiting to happen.

    I understand that the driver of the car has been charged, however it would seem extremely unfair for the driver to be charged, unless it was 100% his fault, without taking into consideration that the bike was absolutely driving way too fast and would not have been able to react in time in any circumstances, and would have been upon the driver of the car so fast he would not have been able to avoid it.
