(CMR) Well known character Lovell Marriott has added to an already difficult morning for commuters by putting trees on the Linford Pierson Highway and protesting this morning claiming that she “needs justice”.
A traffic accident by the Hurley's roundabout has traffic backed all the way to the Newlands area. Numerous morning commuters contacted Cayman Marl Road to complain that they were stuck in traffic and in some instances had not moved for about 45 minutes. That accident involved a Jeep Cherokee that was rear ended by a truck. Additionally, Marriott's antics added to the delays further up the road as police had to intervene to get her debris removed from the highway.
There's no indication if Marriott will be charged for the disruption this morning. She is well know for protesting and for claiming that a local psychiatrist who diagnosed her with a mental illness was trying to kill her. Just two weeks ago she was featured on The Cold Hard Truth for her ongoing antics; which included a video saying that God would vomit on the political leaders in this country. She has also been witnessed going into local businesses and threatening staff as well as walking unclothed in Camana Bay. Whilst many remain concerned about her mental state there appears to be no means of forcing her into treatment against her well.
As a result of the slow moving traffic some parents started walking their kids to Prospect Primary School instead of waiting in the traffic and making them late. Eyewitnesses also observed both parents and teachers parking at Countryside and walking to Savannah Primary School.
Last week police blamed drivers for the delays in rush hour traffic.
