Friends remember cyclist killed in ETH crash

Friends remember 56-year-old Geoff Cornwall, who died Tuesday morning (11 September) after a collision on the Esterly Tibbetts Highway.

It happened around 7:30 a.m. Emergency personnel raced to the ETH between the Yacht Club roundabout and Batabano, where a cyclist and an SUV collided.

Mr. Cornwall died as result of the injuries.

Hours after the crash, those who knew the man gathered near the site to pay respects to their friend.

“Geoff is a very great friend,” said Cesar Rico Aparil.

Disbelief from those closest with the Australian man. “Geoff was my swim coach and I considered him as my immediate family,” said Mr. Aparil.

A triathlete, Mr. Cornwall helped train those like Jalene Cruz.

“Well I’ve known him for over three years now and he was a very kind warm heart person,” said Ms. Cruz.

She said he will be missed by many in the community.

“He was a great motivator and inspiration and I will miss him, the Cayman sporting community will miss him and every time that we are out there on the road he will always be in our hearts,” said Ms. Cruz.

Ms. Cruz added, we all need to be more aware of each other on the roads: “There’s no pointing fingers, we all play a part. Also the cyclists need to be mindful of their surroundings, not only the motorist,” said Ms. Cruz.

The incident is currently under investigation by the Traffic and Roads policing unit.
