(CMR) Kelsy Martinez Ebanks, a Nicaraguan-Caymanian who was arrested for causing death by dangerous driving in the 2021 death of American nurse Kiarah Perkins Williams, pleaded guilty when he appeared in the Cayman Islands Grand Court on Friday.
Kiarah Perkins Williams, a Health Services Authority (HSA) medical ward nurse, was killed when the Honda Fit she was driving collided with a Changan CS75 driven by Martinez Ebanks shortly after 1:00 a.m. on Sunday, 23 May 2021.
Five people from both vehicles, including Martinez Ebanks, were injured in the collision, including another nurse. They were all taken to the hospital where Perkins Williams was pronounced dead, and the others admitted.
Martinez Ebanks, who was employed at Cayman National Bank as a Customer Service Representative, was later arrested and charged.
Martinez Ebanks was bailed until 2 September as his lawyer awaits a response from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions in relation to a second charge relating to the same crash.
