Driver crashes into house

(CNS): A 35-year-old man has been arrested for various traffic offences, including dangerous driving and driving without insurance, after smashing into a house in Breakers early this morning. Police said officers from Bodden Town station are carrying out an investigation into the single vehicle accident which was reported at around 2:50am on Saturday, 11 September, by a police officer on patrol in Breakers. Prior to the accident, the vehicle involved had passed through a police roadblock at the junction of Frank Sound and Seaview Road at an extremely high speed. Shortly after, it ran off the road in Breakers, overturned and collided with a house at 2075 Bodden Town Road. The house and car both received extensive damage. (Photo Denise Warren)

    Tags are renewed each year.  What’s wrong with also attaching an insurance sticker. 

    The unfortunate aspect of this accident is too many drivers on Cayman, especially the young ones, learned their driving skills playing video games or watching Speedvision and they don’t read the disclaimer.

     And yet there are those who complain and say that the police should be catching criminals instead of doing spot checks to check for for things like uninsured and unlicensed drivers.

    Come on guys!  Lets make some educational comments!  These comments are just plain stupidness!

    Yes!  This guy should be locked up and throw away the key!  What’s going to happen to these poor people that now have to come up with the cash to fix their house, or use their insurance to get it fixed and increase their premium.

    I had someone back into me in the car a few years ago, and guess who ended up footing the bill ME! He didn’t have any insurance!

    What makes them so special that they don’t think they need to get any insurance?

      I knew a guy that gave his boss money every week.  The boss said he would take that money, add an equal amount to it and invest it for the guy so when he got older he wouldn’t have to eat dog food, or die for lack of medical treatment.  GUESS WHAT? Do you know this boss was jut keeping that poor guys money.  And here’s the funny part.  The National Pensions Offices didn’t even know it.  I mean he must have been REALLY CLEVER to out fox that bunch… but he did!

         You’re commenting under the wrong article.  This isn’t pension, it’s car insurance.  Your boss shouldn’t be paying your car insurance.  That’s your job.

    All they have to do is go to any Fosters parking lot this weekend or any weekend,take a walk around and see how many stickers are out of date.And I mean stickers that say 07, 08, 09.Trust me they are there,then tow them away.The owner has to bring it up to date before he get’s his car back,simple

       One thing that I would like to see is,maybe out of the 300 to 400 police officers on this island of 50,000 ..(which is a small village where I come from.Who has maybe 50 officers),why can’t they have a roving car that picks on trailers ?. I don’t think that 10%of the trailers that I see are legal. Their light’s don’t work,no back up light’s ,or no light’s at all.How about we start with the basics.

      • Anonymous says:

        agree with that.  I got a $50 ticket for not having a front license plate once.I see plenty of cars with dark covers obscuring the plates.  And the trailers are ridiculous. they have no lights, and the dang lightless trailer blocks the car or trucks lights.

    true statement, but innocent in that you have no idea how many drivers in cayman are without licence and insurance. it is sickeningly common. but the real scary part is how many are drunk at night….

    i know a police officer whose car was recently struck by a drunk driver, and turns out the drunk was not even liscensed nor insured and apparently the car didnt have a legit coupon on it for over 3 years.

    the real crying shame is that if there was a will to clean it up, it would be easy to clean house on a small island with 50,000 people. there just is no will.

    How selfish! Driving without insurance ruins lives of innocent people. It would be so easy for it to be impossible to drive without insurance in Cayman. Driving with no insurance should mean a couple of years in jail.

      They should check the insurance of every car coming out of West Bay. I bet a surprising number of them are uninsured.

        I was told we didn’t need insurance in West Bay

        i would like to ask you  if you belive the only people that do not have insurance is the people that live in west bay.well my friend,i got news for you,maybe you need to check yours first before you talk about anyone else.i am a west bayer and very proud of where i live,iam sick and tired of hearing people like you bringing down the west bay people.remember there is good and bad in every district of grand cayman.so stop hating the people of west bay.and get a life.

        It seems as if your comment is implying that West Bay has the majority of uninsured drivers. Is that what you mean? Because unless you are some sort of statistican or investigator how can you make such a comment. There are many uninsured and unlicensed onthis island. And like it was said before if there was a real crack down on this, then after that, the public can analyze the figures and throw around comments such as yours.

      • WEST BAYA...TIRED OF ARROGANT STATEMENTS ABOUT WEST BAY says:

        Why do you think that a surprising number of the unlicensed/uninsured cars come from West Bay?

        Crime is committed in all districts not just West Bay…so get your facts correct before you go making arrogant statements such as this one!

        Do you own a vehicle? Is yours licensed and insured?

        I am from West Bay and I own a vehicle and mine is licensed and insured!!

        Yeah, they should check George Town, Bodden Town, Breakers, North Side too. Bet a lot of those cars don’t have insurance either.

        Looking forward to all the bleaters in denial about the criminality in West Bay.  They are like that about gun crime too, although they shut up for about a week after every shooting which is linked to WB.  Police enforcement should focus on West Bay, we all know most of the crime comes from there.
