(CMR) Shortly after 10:00 PM on Friday, 5 July, officers responded to a report of a single-vehicle collision on Owen Roberts Drive in the vicinity of the Owen Roberts International Airport.
A grey Porsche SUV exited the roadway and collided with a building on the airport site, causing damage to the building.
The driver, Andrew Rivers, was spoken to by officers and appeared intoxicated. As a result, a roadside breath test was performed with a reading of 0.130%. It was also discovered that the driver was using the vehicle without the permission of the owner. Rivers (31) of North Side, was arrested on suspicion of DUI, careless driving, unlawful use of vehicle, driving without being qualified and driving without insurance.
Upon his arrest, he was transported to the Cayman Islands Hospital to be treated for minor injuries. He is now on police bail.
CMR sources indicate that Rivers is employed by a local auto dealer, Auto Haus, and took the vehicle from their location without permission. The vehicle apparently belongs to a client of the business.
