Three injured in fiery crash

Three men were injured, one critically, Saturday night after the car they were in went off the road into the bush and later burst into flames.

The crash happened behind the Strand shopping center along the Esterley Tibbetts Highway, just south of the Island Heritage roundabout.

Pictures and video of the Honda sedan that crashed showed flames reaching dozens of feet into the air following the wreck. However, the Cayman Compass has learned that all three men inside the car got out of the vehicle before it became engulfed in flames and none of them are suffering from burn injuries.

The vehicle’s driver was believed to be the most critically injured.

Royal Cayman Islands Police said the two passengers in the vehicle suffered minor injuries and managed to pull the seriously injured driver from the vehicle just as it was catching fire.
