Updated: Woman cut free from crashed car

Updated: A woman who had to cut free from a car that collided with a cement mixer truck was being treated Monday for what police described as “non-life-threatening injuries”.

The accident occurred just after 9:25am, police said.

Police said a silver Honda Civic, with two occupants, entered South Sound Road from Shamrock Road just as a white cement mixer truck was exiting a construction site at the entrance of South Sound Road.

“As a result of the collision, the occupants of the Honda Accord had to be extricated by the Cayman Islands Fire Service and one of the occupants was then transported to the Cayman Islands Hospital by ambulance,” police said in a statement Monday afternoon.

No one else was injured in the collision, according to police.

The incident is currently under investigation, the RCIPS said.

A female passenger was trapped inside the Civic and firefighters removed the top of the car to get her out.

The woman was taken to hospital by ambulance. Her condition is not known at this stage. The Compass has reached out to the RCIPS for further details.
