Crash witnesses sought three weeks after the event

| 22/04/2009

(CNS): Police on Cayman Brac are appealing for witnesses to a car crash that ended in an assault. The crash occurred in the vicinity of Surf Lane at around 1:20 am on Sunday, 29 March. Police and paramedics responded to the scene where a 22-year-old man was found to have severe facial injuries. CNS understands that a single passenger in the car is married to a 30-year-old man, a pedestrian at the scene, who was arrested on suspicion of assault causing grievous bodily harm, and that the victim, who was the driver of the car, is her nephew.

CNS also understands that the car swerved off the road through several yards, destroying a gazebo in one of them. Police say the victim was taken to hospital and currently remains receiving medical care.

Police said it has become clear that there were a number of people present in the area following the accident. Officers are anxious to speak to anybody who saw the vehicle involved in the crash in the area thatnight, including bystanders at the scene following the crash. They are particularly keen to trace anyone who called 911.

“We need the assistance of the community to help us get to the bottom of this incident,” said Sergeant Matt Dawson. “A young man has suffered some severe facial injuries and it is vital that the person/s responsible are brought to justice. It is extremely difficult for the police to effectively investigate crimes such as this without the assistance of the public and I would urge anyone who saw anything at all to get in touch with the police. All information received will be treated in the strictest of confidence.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Sergeant Dawson on 948-0331 or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS). All persons calling Crime Stoppers remain anonymous, and are eligible for a reward of up to $1000, should their information lead to an arrest or recovery of property/drugs.
