The man arrested on suspicion of causing the death of a motorbike rider Sunday (21 February) night has been released from custody.
The 53-year-old from North Side was released on police bail for three weeks pending further inquires.
Around 8 p.m. police received reports of a crash on Shamrock Road close to Domino’s Pizza in Savannah. A Kia Sportage had collided with a motorbike.
The rider of the bike was rushed to the Cayman Islands Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The driver of the car was arrested at the scene on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.
He’s from the north side area.
Police identified the man killed in the crash as Denvil Roy Mitchell, a 40 year old man from West Bay. The father of three was employed as a heavy equipment operator with the National Roads Authority (NRA).
It’s the second death on our roads this year. Last month, a woman died after a single car collision on Cayman Brac.
Mr. Mitchell’s family released the following statement: “Denvil was a kind, loving person who had a great sense of humour and was always willing to lend a helping hand. There will be a great void in his family and trust that god will continue to strengthen and comfort us during this most difficult time.”
Meanwhile, police want to speak to the driver of a silver Honda CRV who was behind the motorbike just before the accident.
