A man was in critical condition at the Cayman Islands Hospital Monday afternoon after being stabbed in a fight in the early morning hours at Vic’s Bar on North Sound Road.

Police received a call on the confrontation just before 1:45am, but both men had left the scene by the time they and other emergency responders arrived. The injured man reportedly drove himself to the hospital.

Nearly an hour later, at 2:34am, an accident was reported at a church on Frank Sound Road. The driver of a red Kia Picante reportedly lost control and crashed into the columns of the church, ending up perched on one of the columns. He was transported to the hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Police said they determined the driver, 24, of North Side, was the second person involved in the earlier bar fight and arrested the man on suspicion of wounding with intent. He was also warned of intended prosecution for several traffic offences including DUI and driving while disqualified.

  1. Time and time again we read of disqualified drivers driving drunk and being involved in serious sometimes fatal accidents.
    The sentencing guidelines in these cases need to be amended to provide for doubling the normal sentence as this is the only way to keep these people off the road.
