(CNS): The 23-year-old driver of a Mitsubishi Lancer who was involved in a high speed crash in South Sound last year that killed Zac Quappe (21) has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving. The fatal crash which took the life of the son of well-known local musicians, Chuck and Barrie Quappe, happened in the early hours of Saturday, 18 May 2013, near to Sand Cay Condos. At around 3:11am the Mitsubishi Lancer and the Ford Taurus driven by Quappe, which were both travelling southwards on the single carriageway with a 30mph speed limit, collided as the drivers were negotiating a left bend and lost control of their vehicles.

Quappe was pronounced dead at the Cayman Islands Hospital following the crash, and the unnamed driver who was treated for injuries was arrested.  Police said Tuesday that he has now been charged with causing Quappe’s death and was due to appear in court on 3 February after being released on police bail.
