Driver hurt in road-rage

| 04/02/2013

(CNS): One man is currently in a critical condition in a US hospital and second is in police custody after a road-rage incident following a road collision in the early hours of Sunday morning. Police say the injured man was dragged several hundred yards along the road as he clung onto the door of the car attempting to leave the scene of the smash. At about 12:30am on Sunday 3 February, the two-car crash took place on Shedden Road near Elizabethan Square in George Town. A black Honda Accord and a white Ford Taurus had collided and while no one was injured in the crash, the two drivers reportedly got into an altercation. As the driver of the Accord started to drive off from the scene, the driver of the Taurus grabbed onto the door of the Accord.

He reportedly held onto the door until the Accord subsequently crashed near to the Texaco gas station further along Sheddon Road, when the driver and passenger ran off from the scene.

The 24-year-old driver of the Taurus sustained serious injuries and was conveyed to the Cayman Islands Hospital in George Town but he has since been airlifted to the United States for treatment where his condition is described as critical. Meanwhile, the driver of the Accord, who is an 18-year-old man, has been arrested on suspicion of GBH, dangerous driving and leaving the scene of an accident.

As police enquiries continue into the incident officers are asking anyone who was in the vicinity of Shedden Road at the relevant time is to contact George Town police station on 949-4222, the RCIPS tip-line 9494-777 or Crime Stoppers 800-8477 (TIPS).

    Road rage is a serious fact in Cayman and tempers flare way too quick. I suggest calling the po – po with plate # first but don’t hold down to a getaway car. Not good. Hope you get better with the Good Lor’ds help.
