(CMR) Joseph Wood III (32) of Bodden Town has been arrested on suspicion of DUI following a motor vehicle collision that took place along Bodden Town Road in the vicinity of Cherry Tree Drive in Bodden Town.
Reports from the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) are that on Tuesday (May 5) at around 7:00 p.m. a blue Nissan Skyline was traveling ahead of a brown Chevrolet Silverado, both heading eastbound along Bodden Town Road.
One of the vehicles involved slowed to accommodate a turning vehicle ahead and was struck by the vehicle behind, causing extensive damage to the Nissan Skyline and minor damage to the Chevrolet Colorado.
A roadside breath test was conducted on both drivers and one of the drivers, a 32-year-old-man of Bodden Town, showed a reading of .243% and was subsequently arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.
While in custody the man complained of pain to his arm and was taken to the Cayman Islands Hospital for treatment and later released.
The man was later bailed pending further investigations.
Wood is known to have an extensive history of traffic-related offenses over the years and has previously lost his license in the past as a result.
