(CMR) A hit and run incident has left an elderly Cayman Brac resident from Watering Place dead this morning.
CMR sources informed us that the accident occurred in the early morning hours before 4:00 am. A call was received to the 911 Communications Centre that a man was found unresponsive in the street. The police have the road near the Esperanza Bar closed off whilst they conduct their investigations. At this time, traffic is being diverted to Ann Tatum Drive or Aston Rutty and drivers are advised to avoid the area.
Brac informants have indicated that the man's facial injuries were so severe that the police have had a hard time identifying him. However, we have been provided with a name of the deceased; which we will not release at this time. He's a local handyman and is said to be in his late 50s.
Anyone wishing to assist the police with solving who hit the man and left the scene of the accident should contact the Cayman Brac Police Station immediately.
