(CMR) A 23-year-old West End, Cayman Brac man was ran over by a car last night after a bar room altercation in George Town.
CMR sources indicate that the men were at the Sea Inn Bar on Shedden Road when an altercation broke out after 10:00 pm. He then fled the scene and was mowed down by the other person in a vehicle. The vehicle then had to be lifted off of him and he was transported to the hospital.
The police were filmed on the scene after they closed off the road. Eyewitnesses reported seeing the vehicle in the middle of the road.
