Around 3:30 a.m. this morning, 3 August, there was a single-vehicle accident on Ashton Reid Drive on Cayman Brac, in the vicinity of Bight Road.
CMR sources inform us that they collided with a light pole which caused several power outages for local residents throughout the night.
A call was received to 911 personnel to report that a vehicle was on fire and police, fire, and emergency personnel were dispatched to the scene.
The two female occupants of the vehicle had already gotten out of the car before it caught fire. A passing car took both women to Faith Hospital before first responders arrived.
The driver of the vehicle received minor cuts and injuries, but the passenger received serious injuries to her legs. Early this morning the police helicopter airlifted the passenger to the Cayman Islands Hospital on Grand Cayman due to the severity of her injuries.
The incident is under police investigation and anyone with information is asked to call the Traffic Management Unit at 649-6254.
