Just after 2:35 AM on Saturday morning, 20 March, police and other emergency services were dispatched by the 9-1-1 Communication Centre to a report of a single-vehicle collision that took place along Seaview Road, East End, in the vicinity of the blowholes. It was reported that a jeep wrangler that was travelling westbound ran over the guard railing and into the water.
One occupant of the vehicle was recovered by officers from the Cayman Islands Fire Service and was transported to the Cayman Islands Hospital by ambulance where he was pronounced dead by the attending doctor. No other persons have been recovered from this collision and no other persons reported being involved or injured.
The roadway was closed to the public since the arrival of emergency services to accommodate on-scene investigations and was reopened later that morning.
