(CNS): Patrick Raymond Brooks-Dixon, who has already appeared in court charged with killing Richard Martin (52) from Pennsylvania, USA, is now facing an additional charge. Earlier this evening, Tuesday 13 December, he was also charged with causing death whilst driving under the influence of alcohol and it is anticipated that he will appear in court again on Monday, 9 January. Brooks-Dixon (31) was released on court bail Tuesday 6 December, having faced charges of causing death by dangerous driving. Both charges relate to the fatal crash in the early hours of Wednesday, 30 November on the Esterley Tibbetts Highway.

The victim, a student at St Matthew’s University and a resident of Grand Cayman, was killed in the fatal crash which occurred close to the Lakeside Villas entrance. Martin, who was driving a Honda Logo, was pronounced dead at the scene after his car was hit by a Chevrolet Blazer driven by Brooks-Dixon. A passenger in the Honda was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Brooks-Dixon and his female passenger were also taken to hospital. 

Martin was the sixth person to be killed on Cayman’s roads this year.
