(CNS): The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) has reported another two separate car crashes today, (Thursday 11 December) where the drivers were lucky to escape uninjured. This morning a woman driver smashed into a light pole on West Bay and later a man overturned his car when he skidded off the East-West arterial road in the Prospect area.


Police said drivers need to maintain safe driving practices and ensure that their Holiday Season is not marred by carelessness on the roads and are warned not to drink and drive as offenders will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Meanwhile, police are now looking for witnesses to both this mornings incidents as investigations are underway.

In the first incident the 911 Emergency Communications Centre received a call at 8:10 am informing them that a Suzuki Grand Vitara had crashed into a pole on West Bay Road. The accident occurred in the vicinity of Texaco Gas station as the driver was exiting Lawrence Boulevard on to West Bay Road. The female driver was not injured. Anyone who witnessed that crash or believes they saw the vehicle prior to the accident should contact Police Constable Richard Scott of the Traffic Management Department on 946 6254. The second accident, reported at 11:00am, involved a white Chevrolet Trail Blazer driven by a man traveling west along the East-West Arterial road. The vehicle skidded off the road, near the roundabout at the junction of the old Prospect Road and Shamrock Road, and turned over on to its left side. The driver was not injured.

Police are appealing to any motorists who may have been traveling in the area at the time of the crash to contact Police Constable Eunell Gilzeane at the Traffic Management Department.

Anyone with information about crime taking place in the Cayman Islands should contact their local police station or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS).
