(CMR) A young man is alleged to have hit at least two other vehicles in a serious head-on collision in the Northward Road area close to Old Yard Lane around 4:30 pm this afternoon.
We understand that 29-year-old Jovin Fuentes of Bodden Town was seriously injured after his vehicle caught on fire when he hit a tree and several other vehicles. Eyewitnesses said that his vehicle hit several others and the extent of their injuries is unknown at this time. The substantial blaze was observed by many on the scene and he was pulled from the vehicle. Police, fire rescue and ambulance attended the scene shortly thereafter.
Our sources indicate that he is badly burned and in critical condition.
Fuentes was a passenger in another serious car accident back in March 2015 when his then girlfriend, Rowena Loveta Scott, 25 died. The accident happened in Spotts and there were allegations brought up in Coroner's Court that he was indirectly responsible for her death because they were arguing during the incident. However, the court eventually found she died by misadventure when no eyewitnesses to the alleged fight were located by the police.
Fuentes published a night time Instagram video several days ago defying his curfew and titled it: “F**** Curfew”
This is a developing story. The road is blocked off as police continue their investigations.
One of the vehicles is believed to have had only one occupant and the other is believed to have had two occupants. All three parties were transported to the Cayman Islands Hospital by ambulance, where all three are currently being treated for what appears to be serious injuries.
Officers from the Cayman Islands Fire Service were present on scene and extinguished the fire that was caused as a result of the collision.
The matter is currently being investigated by the Traffic and Roads Policing Unit. Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to call the Traffic and Roads Policing Unit at 649-6254.
