| 01/12/2008

(CNS): Police said this afternoon that the one vehicle crash on Bodden Town Road on Sunday morning 30 November claimed the life of 28-year-old Cameleta Pancheta Ayres, a Jamaican national and the tenth person to be killed on Cayman’s roads this year. Ayres was killed when the car she was driving crashed in to a CUC light pole in the Breakers area.

 

The male passenger who was travelling with Ayres sustained serious but not life threatening injuries was treated and discharged from George Town Hospital yesterday.  The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) has offered its condolences to the family and friends of Ms Ayres who died around 8:00am on Sunday.

The cause of the accident is currently under investigation by the Traffic Management Unit and officers are asking for anyone who witnessed the accident or believes they saw the vehicle prior to the crash to contact Police Constable Kenville Holder on 926 1671.

Yet again Cayman comes towards the end of the year with another high death toll on its roads. Ten people have been killed in various road crashes and incidents this year alone. Another significant number of people have also been severely injured in road accidents. On Monday 24 November 2 men in their twenties were airlifted for treatment in hospital in Jamaica after they were critically injured when the greyHonda Civic in which they were travelling crashed on Eastern Avenue at around 1:50am o 22 November, near Uncle Bills. Neither man was wearing a seatbelt and police said the car was believed to be speeding before the crash occurred.

Anyone with information about crime taking place in the Cayman Islands should contact their local police station or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS). All persons calling crime stoppers remain anonymous, and are eligible for a reward of up to $1000, should their information lead to an arrest or recovery of property/drugs.

    FACT – The R.C.I.P. Traffic Department boasts the SAME compliment of staff today, as it did in 1976.

     Any wonder why so many traffic related offences go un-check and un-punnished? Reckless abandon on C.I. road’s will lead to higher road fatalities, one dosn’t need an education to see that. 

    Furthermore, can anyone say WHO is responsible for the ‘Clean-up’ of the aftermath of road accidents. The POLICE say it isn’t their Job or responsibility, I say it is ! Not only is it unsightly, it can be outright dangerous.
