Police Report on Serious Collisions over the Weekend

This past weekend, between Friday 15 July and Sunday 17 July, police and other emergency services responded to over 25 vehicle collisions, several of which were serious incidents that involved injuries.

Of particular note, just after 4:30AM on Saturday 16 July, police and other emergency services attended Shamrock Road in the vicinity of the Spotts Dock area where a collision took place between a white Kia Optima and a white Toyota Belta. The driver of the Toyota fled the scene prior to the arrival of the emergency services. The Kia, which had two occupants, both of whom sustained what is believed to be non-life-threatening injuries, were assisted by both the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and the Cayman Islands Fire Service (CIFS) at the scene.

Both vehicles received extensive damage as a result of this collision, which also caused a Caribbean Utilities Company (CUC) light pole to fall into the roadway, creating an obstruction which was later cleared by CUC staff.

Just before 6:00PM on Sunday 17 July, police and other emergency services responded to a second incident on Shamrock Road, in the vicinity of Grand Harbour, where it was reported that a collision occurred between a black Honda Fit and a green heavy equipment vehicle, which resulted in the Honda Fit landing on the median of the roadway and being extensively damaged.

The driver of the Honda Fit is believed to have sustained non-life-threatening-injuries and both the EMS and the CIFS attended the scene and assisted with the incident.

“Thankfully, these incidents didn’t result in more serious outcomes for the persons involved and other road users”, says Acting Superintendent Brad Ebanks.  “As such, the RCIPS wants to provide a timely reminder to motorists of the importance of driving defensively on the roadways.  This means always being aware of your surroundings, including how you drive and being aware of other motorists and road users.  Never drink and drive, follow the speed limits and give all your attention to your driving.”

Both collisions are being investigated by the police and investigators are encouraging anyone with information to call the Traffic and Roads Policing Unit at 649-6254 or the George Town Police Station at 949-4222
