Car flips in George Town road smash

| 15/12/2012

(CNS): A woman was recovering in hospital Saturday after a road smash this morning near Lantern Point Condos on Shamrock Road, George Town. Police said that at around 7:15am officers attended the single vehicle crash in which a female driver heading west towards George Town had lost control of her car as she reached the roundabout. The vehicle flipped on the side and an ambulance transported the woman, who was the only person in the vehicle at the time, to the Cayman Islands Hospital. Her injuries are not life threatening and an investigation into the cause of the accident is on-going, police said.

Anyone who may have witnessed this accident or have information relative to it is asked to call George Town Police Station at 9494222.

Meanwhile, the RCIPS also said that two people were arrested over Friday night and Saturday morning for driving under the influence of alcohol and 15 other people were prosecuted for various traffic offences.

A police spokesperson said those who decide to ignore the many warnings being issued by the RCIPS relative to traffic violations must prepare themselves for the consequences of being prosecuted and taken before the court.

    I drove past the scene of the accident that morning, and there was heavy dew on the road. That roundabout is treacherous when wet, even though the surface has been scored. I see many people tempting fate there with excessive speed. Drivers should know this danger by now, but I guess some never learn.

      Nothing is wrong with any round -abouts. you people need to remember your brain is in your head and not in your feet.

      The brain tells the feet that it is too heavy and you should lift it up at times, so as not to speed like an idiot.

      If the roads are wet then remember the lesson you learnt doing your  driving test, slow down on wet roads and sharp curves.

      The old folks say… ears hard, your ass will feel! slow down!!!!

    Try using tires with tread. They work great. Why are there no tire laws here?
