(CNS): Both of the men involved in a serious one-vehicle car crash on Saturday have been airlifted to Jamaica for treatment. The two men who are in their 20’s, may have been speeding when the grey Honda Civic in which they were travelling crashed on Eastern Avenue at around 1:50am on Saturday, 24 November, near Uncle Bills.

Police said the 911 Emergency Communications centre received a call from a member of the public reporting that a car had crashed into a CUC pole on Eastern Avenue. The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) and medics responded to the scene and the men had to be cut free from the vehicle by Fire and Rescue officers.

Neither of the two men were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the crash and witnesses have told police that the car may have been speeding before it crashed.

Officers from the Traffic Management Unit are currently investigating the crash and would like to hear from anyone who saw the crash or the vehicle prior to the crash. Anyone who can help should contact Chief Inspector Courtney Myles on946-6254 or 926-0649.
