(CMR) A 30-year-old woman from George Town was arrested following a hit and run on Sunday, 19 June, which left the driver of a motorcycle hospitalized. The woman reportedly ran away from the scene to a nearby apartment complex where she resides.
Police and other emergency services were dispatched by the 9-1-1 Communication Centre to a report of a two-vehicle collision involving a motorcycle and a motorcar that took place on Crewe Road in the vicinity of Palm Dale just before 9:30 pm.
It was reported that the driver of a red sedan motorcar that was involved fled the location following the collision. The motorcyclist was transported to the Cayman Islands Hospital by ambulance, where he is currently receiving treatment for serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
A search was carried out to find the woman, which included removing her apartment door; however, she could not be found initially. Sometime later, the woman of George Town was arrested and bailed pending further investigation.
The roadway was closed overnight while the scene was being processed but has since been re-opened. The woman's car was towed from the location Monday morning.
