Update : 3 injured after car bursts into flames


Three men were injured after a car overturned and burst into flames Saturday (10 March) along the Esterley Tibbetts Highway, according to an RCIPS spokesperson.

One man remains hospitalized with serious and life-threatening injuries. The other two are believed to have minor injuries, according to police.

Firefighters battled the car fire near the Island Heritage roundabout, which is now extinguished, according to a Cayman Islands Fire Services spokesperson.

The incident happened around 8:30 p.m.

The driver lost control and the car ran off the road and overturned. Two occupants exited the car and that was catching fire and pulled the third out before it was completely engulfed in flames, according to police.

Cayman 27 will continue to update this story as more details become available.

(Editor’s note: Police originally said it was the driver who remains in critical condition. Since then, police said all three me exited the vehicle before they arrived, so they still are working to determine who was driving. Our story has been updated to reflect this.)
