(CMR) Police have confirmed that the couple who died in Sunday's fatal traffic collision are Mr. Lopez George Higgins, age 26, and Ms. Charlisa Titanya Chambers, age 27, both Jamaican nationals living in Cayman.
CMR sources indicate that the two were coming from a function at a local bar in East End where Higgins was DJing for the evening.
Higgins is from Highgate, St. Mary Jamaica. He has been in Cayman for about two years. However, we understand that this was Chambers first trip to Cayman.
The collision occurred shortly after 3:00 am Sunday morning on Sea View Road, East End; in the vicinity of High Rock Drive. The other vehicle involved in the collision is a government dump truck. That driver was not injured.
Eyewitnesses shared with CMR that the accident scene was unbelievable. One person noted:
“I've seen a lot of accidents in my day, but this one was really quite bad. I feel for the family members.”
Cayman Marl Road extends condolences to both families.
