(CNS): Yet again police are appealing for witnesses to a single vehicle crash which happened in the early hours of Saturday morning and has left a man hospitalised with serious injuries. According to the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS), the 911 Emergency Communications Centre received a call at around 3:05 am on Saturday 6 December reporting that a car had run off the road and collided with a tree.

An investigation into the car crash, in which the 24-year-old driver was seriously injured, is now underway. Police and medics responded to the scene on Saturday morning where they found an unconscious man in a Black Chrysler PT Cruiser that had been travelling west along Shamrock Road. The car which was in the vicinity of Trumbach Drive had collided with a tree and the driver had sustained injuries to the head and was taken to hospital. Police said that he has since regained consciousness and is in a stable but serious condition.

Scenes of Crime officers processed the scene and an accident reconstructionist is carrying out investigations. Anyone who witnessed the crash or believes they saw the vehicle prior to the crash is asked to contact Chief Inspector Courtney Myles on 926 0649. The RCIPS is reminding drivers to maintain safe driving practices and ensure that their Holiday Season is not marred by carelessness on the roads. Motorists are warned not to drink and drive as offenders will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

    Thankfully this young man is in stable condition, and we are not reading about another raod fatality. His family is very close to mine, and I am so glad that they still have him to hold on to.

    I would just like Twyla to know that the "evil dark mysterious forces" she talks about in the more eastern districts must have now found it’s way to Lower Valley! Next stop GT & WB!! LOL!! Girl please, it is reported that he [fell asleep at the wheel,] thankfully he is still alive and will hopefully be able to recover fully from it.
